Tickets For Singapore Airlines’ A380 Restaurant Sell Out In Half An Hour

Tickets for Singapore Airlines pop-up A380 restaurants sold out within 30 minutes.

The Singapore airline Today went on sale for a dining experience onboard its Airbus A380 and all tickets were sold out within half an hour.

While the airline confirmed it would start a waiting list later today due to the strong demand for people who missed out.

Singapore Airlines earlier announced that it would be offering a dining experience on two of its parked Airbus A380s at Changi Airport.

Due to social distancing restrictions, not every seat on the A380s will be filled. Typically, each plane can carry 471 people. However, the airline is only selling adjacent seats to those who are in family groups, and otherwise is leaving space between diners.

The superjumbo pop-up restaurant proved so popular that tickets were snapped up in under 30 minutes. The airline has said it will make a waiting list for those still looking to join in.

The lunch serving starts at midday, and the restaurant will close at 15:00. During that time, guests can choose from the standard aircraft menu or branch out and select something from the specially-created Peranakan menu designed by chef Shermay Lee. Every diner will enjoy two complimentary alcoholic drinks.

Ticket-holders can also choose to take a tour of the aircraft before they dine. The tours start from 09:00 and will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. The tour will include a look at the design process of the new A380 cabins as well as a peek into the cockpit and the hidden crew areas.

The lucky guests will be able to enjoy the full range of entertainment provided on a Singapore Airlines flight, including over 1,000 movies and TV shows via KrisWorld. Each guest will also receive a surprise souvenir as a memory of the experience.

More than just a restaurant

Singapore Airlines is also offering an at-home dining experience where you will receive instructions on how to reheat, plate and serve the very best plane food. And Singapore Airlines isn’t the only airline offering some bizarre experiences. With the global downturn in recent months, airlines are finding new and innovative ways to make money.

It seems almost every airline is offering a flight to nowhere nowadays. From Qantas, Starlux, ANA, and EVA Air to Air India, Asiana Airlines, and Royal Brunei Airlines, flights to nowhere are seemingly everywhere. And it isn’t just flights that are proving popular. From pajamas and amenity kits to bar carts, nuts and at-home meals, if it isn’t screwed to the plane, airlines are prepared to sell it.
