The recent launch of Singapore Airline's ultra-luxurious Airbus A380 highlighted the service and facilities offered in their 12 first-class suites aimed to meet every conceivable creature comfort - barring one. The exclusivity of private cabins, fine wine, outstanding cuisine, attentive service, and a separate double bed featuring fine linen and Givenchy duvets have somehow fueled speculation that couples traveling in such luxury would enjoy the consummate luxury of, well, not to make too fine a point of it, "consummation"."Flying Too High With Some Gal In The Sky
Is My Idea Of Nothing To Do" Ė Frank Sinatra
Apparently, the sky is
the limit for sexual thrill-seekers on Singapore Airlines
who mistakenly saw the airline's new flying hotel suites as an open invitation to join the mile-high club.
The Airline has made the practical point that, despite doors and curtains, those inside the luxurious sky cabins are partially visible to voyeurs
and fellow voyagers. Equally worrying, the flying suites are not completely sound proof.
For all these reasons and others, Singapore Airlines
has formally asked its A380
passengers to sit back, relax, have another class of premium champagne
but to please
refrain from sex while flying at 30,500 feet ensconced in a double bed.
An Airline spokesperson said, "all we ask of customers, wherever they are on our aircraft, is to observe standards that don't cause offense to other customers and crew."
Tony Elwood, who traveled with his wife Julie on the inaugural flight, told the Times of London
: "so they'll sell you a double bed, and give you privacy and endless champagne and then say you can't do what comes naturally?"
Equally dismayed, Julie added: "They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters, I'd say they shouldn't really complain, should they?"Dear, was that a patch mid-air turbulence?
