Royal Brunei confirmed yesterday that they have ordered 5x B787-800. So I guess this is the same order as previously rumoured. The B787s, and I suspect with the addition of B77Ws (maybe...) are meant to replace the B777s.

There are no exact delivery date given due to the ongoing delays from Boeing but speaking at the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) 54th Assembly of Presidents, the CEO did say that they've got 5 planes on order, and are expecting first deliveries in 2012.

They also mentioned the possible addition of routes to Taipei, Seoul or Tokyo. I understand that from a source, the numbers look pretty good for these 3 destinations but they can only choose 1 due to aircraft restrictions.

ROYAL Brunei Airlines (RBA) has placed orders for five Boeing 787 aircraft and is considering the potential of adding routes to Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo, executives yesterday said.

Robert Yang, chief executive officer of RBA, yesterday confirmed that the aircraft had been ordered directly through Boeing and that it is a "complex arrangement".

... He said that a contract extension with Singapore Airlines, the company that RBA is leasing the Boeing 777 from, will depend on the situation in the future.
