Singapore Airlines is throwing a wet towel on hopes that the double beds and private suites on the new Airbus A380 would revolutionize high-altitude romance. The airline today asked passengers to “observe standards that don’t cause offense.” Cabins are private, but not sound-proof or sealed, Reuters reports. No word on the availability of cold showers on the new jets.
“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?” complained one traveler. “They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters.” Singapore is the only airline currently operating the A380, the world’s largest passenger jet.
