Singapore Airlines said seats were sold out this morning after it booked more than 1,000 reservations for people to board an A380 aircraft to eat a meal.
All tickets were snapped up, according to the airline’s website, to board the parked plane for lunch Oct. 24 and 25 at Changi Airport. That means people paid S$53.50 for a cramped spot in economy and S$642 for a luxury suite. There are nearly 500 seats on the aircraft, of which half are available to diners due to social distancing.
Aircraft diners will be served either international or Peranakan lunches by Singaporean chef Shermay Lee. Those unable to make reservations were redirected to a waitlist and will be contacted if there’s a cancelation.
Singapore Airlines announced “Restaurant A380 @ Changi” last month in place of setting its jets off on flights to “nowhere.” Other less environmentally harmful programs the airline is rolling out to get through the pandemic include guided tours of its aviation training facilities and home delivery of its business class meals priced from S$308, all to begin next month.
