Singapore Airlines has been hit hard by the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. Last month, it announced plans to launch "flights to nowhere" that just take off, circle the airport, and then land.
Now, to put its grounded planes to good use, the airline is using the jetliners as pop-up restaurants. Since Singapore Airlines has an excellent reputation for in-flight food, this may draw customers. Fast Company reports:
Customers had the option of buying tickets in different classes, with a meal in a first class suite priced at $474 compared to an $39 economy class meal. Both meals will take place on planes at Singapore’s Changi Airport, which is the company’s hub. The airline says it will enforce social distancing, using only half of the 471 seats on the plane.
