On Sep. 29, Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced that it would be launching "Discover Your Singapore Airlines", a suite of experiences specially curated for customers in Singapore.
One of the experiences — Restaurant A380 @Changi, where members of the public can dine aboard an SIA Airbus A380 double-decker superjumbo — was a hit with consumers, and sold out more than 900 seats within 30 minutes of its launch on Oct. 12.
The dining experience was originally only slated to be available on the afternoons of Oct. 24 and 25. Due to overwhelming demand, SIA opened up one more weekend of slots, on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
