Singapore Airlines has decided to transform two of its A380 superjumbos that are currently parked at Changi Airport into temporary restaurants on October 24 and 25. That, however, is not the big news, but the response it has received is what’s creating waves in the media. The company has recently announced that it has already sold out the bookings for these A380 restaurants, and the interesting part is that it all happened within just 30 minutes. Now that’s some record-breaking stuff, isn’t it!

If you managed to get a seat, well, congratulations! Others who are still wondering what might be the chances to gain such an experience, don’t worry, as you can still try your luck to grab a seat on further bookings because Singapore Airlines has decided to extend the service for at least two more days in the following weekend. It will also add dinner options for upcoming services.

As far as the rates are concerned, while a meal in a suite will cost you SGD 642 (INR 34,643), a business class seat would charge SGD 321 (INR 17,330). Whereas you’ll get premium economy and economy seats at SGD 96.30 (INR 5,199) and SGD 53.50 (INR 2,888), respectively. Those with enough frequent-flyer miles can also choose to pay via them.

The A380 carriers can usually seat around 500 passengers, but Singapore Airlines will use only half the seats for this restaurant service. The move will ensure that all guidelines on social distancing and group limits are met with. The company has also opened up a waitlist, which will allow more and more people to be a part of the experience.
