In response to overwhelming demand, SIA has added new dates for the special event.
According to the Straits Times, all 900 available seats at Singapore Airlines’ pop-up venue Restaurant A380 @Changi sold out within 30 minutes of reservations opening on Monday. The original plan was to only host lunches on Saturday, October 24 and Sunday, October 25, but such is the appetite for travel-related experiences that SIA will also serve hungry customers the next weekend (on October 31 and November 1), with lunch and dinner offered on all four days. A limited number of guests can also sign up for pre-meal tours of the superjumbo jet, taking in areas not usually accessible to passengers.
Prices differ depending on the cabin class booked. A three-course meal in economy costs S$53.50 (or 6,687 KrisFlyer miles) including GST, while a four-course feast in a first-class Suite will set you back a hefty S$642 (or 80,250 KrisFlyer miles). Lunch or dinner enjoyed in the comfort of a business-class seat will be S$321 (40,125 KrisFlyer miles), and a premium-economy meal is priced at S$96.30 (12,037 KrisFlyer miles). Social distancing requirements mean that only half of all the A380’s seats will be used. Diners can choose between a selection of international favorites and Peranakan dishes by Shermay Lee, a celebrated chef and cookbook author (who happens to be the niece of Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew).
Other on-the-ground experiences being offered as part of the new “Discover Your Singapore Airlines” initiative include tours of SIA’s flight training facility and a home delivery service for first- and business-class meals.
