Airline bans A380 mile-high club
Singapore Airlines A380
BBC

Singapore Airlines has taken the unusual step of publicly asking passengers on its new Airbus A380 plane not to engage in any sexual activities.

The potential problem has arisen because the first class area of its giant superjumbo contains 12 private suites complete with double beds.

Singapore, which is the first airline to start flying the A380, said the suites were not sound-proofed.

It said it did not want anyone to offend other travellers or crew.

Singapore added that while the suites were private, they were also not completely sealed.

'Observing standards'
"All we ask of customers, wherever they are on our aircraft, is to observe standards that don't cause offence to other customers and crew," the airline said in a statement.

"Nothing different applies for our Singapore Airlines Suites customers."

Singapore Airlines took delivery of its first A380 earlier this month, with the first services between Singapore and Sydney starting on 25 October.

It is now set to take delivery of a further five A380s in 2008, out of its order of 19.

well, there goes the Mile High Club....which should be known as the 6 Mile High Club since there are 5,280 feet in 1 mile and planes with lavatories usually cruise at 33,0000. IMHO

They could video the private suite proceedings and sell the feed as a premium to the poor shmucks in steerage.

Sounds like you're a pretty good marketing man, Randy.

Ever fly on Singapore Airlines? One of the best IMHO for overseas flights and they have really good food even for airlines. Better than a 60 calorie bag of pretzels.

All the intimate couple has to do is play music to cover the sound. The 1812 Overture has never let anyone down yet.

One-minute minuet for me, thank you very much. And that includes lighting a cigarette and kicking the gal outta bed to get me a beer.

Hmm 18 minutes of Bolero and paying $5,000 for a first class seat next door in 1B ....no way even with the noise cancelling headphones! Might as well rent a private jet for that money.
