Singapore: ‘Parked Jet Restaurants’ become a hit after tickets get sold out in 30 minutes

via - Twitter

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing unabated, various unusual and unique trends have emerged across the globe. Dining on parked jets is one such trend which is being promoted by the coronavirus-battered Singapore Airlines. Hundreds of people are paying the equivalent of a budget ticket just to feast on their favorite dishes inside grounded A380 aircraft.

This has come as good news for those who love to enjoy airline food inside aircraft. Those willing to pay a hefty sum of up to Sg$642 ($470) can now have a meal on an A380, the world’s biggest passenger aircraft.

Due to the halt on air travel caused by the coronavirus outbreak, Singapore Airlines had to cut thousands of jobs and ground nearly all its aircrafts this year. However, the airlines came up with the innovative idea of offering their travel-starved customers the opportunity to dine on one of two A380 aircraft which has been turned into a pop-up restaurant.

To everyone’s surprise, all 900 seats for lunch on October 24 and 25 were sold out within 30 mins of the opening of bookings on Monday, as per Straits Times newspaper.

In view of the “overwhelming demand”, the airlines announced that the restaurants would be opened for an additional two days. People can now opt for Lunch and dinner on four dates.
The options range from a four-course meal in a first-class suite to a Sg$53 meal consisting of a three-course meal in the economy class.

However, keeping in mind the spread of COVID-19, about half the seats will be left vacant on the aircraft turned restaurant.

For those who wish to enjoy their favorite airline food at the ease of their homes, Singapore Airlines is also offering home deliveries.
