"No sex in the champagne room."
Airbus' A380 is finally making regular commercial flights after
. The superjumbo made its first commercial flight on October 25 thanks to Singapore Airlines.
Singapore Airlines has seen fit to equip its A380 with 60 business class seats and 399 economy class seats. In addition, the Singapore Airlines A380 has 12 first class luxury suites complete with a double bed and 23" flat panel television.
Interestingly enough, despite promotional pictures showing the double beds equipped littered with rose petals and a tray complete with wine and wine glasses (see right); Singapore Airlines discourages
passengers from having sex in the suites
"If couples used our double beds to engage in inappropriate activity, we would politely ask them to desist," said Singapore Airlines spokesman Stephen Forshaw. "There are things that are acceptable on an aircraft and things that aren’t, and the rules for behavior in our double beds are the same ones that apply throughout the aircraft."
Double beds, privacy, wine, gourmet food... but no sex? Come on!
Passengers have attempted (and in many cases succeeded) to have sex in cramped airplane bathrooms for years. Now, an airline gives high-dollar passengers private suits with double beds and countless bottles of champagne and expects their patrons to not get freaky?
An Australian couple booked the first double suite with Singapore Airlines, but they didn't get a chance to "break the rules" due to an infusion of reporters looking to interview them during the flight.
"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," questioned Tony Elwood.
"They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters," remarked Tony's wife, Julie. "I’d say they shouldn’t really complain, should they?"
Regardless, Singapore Airlines needs to just ease up and take a chill pill. If you don't want your passengers to have sex, toss out the double beds and put in a twin bed.
On second thought, that's still more than enough room for most people...
