Singapore Airlines bans A380 rumpy-pumpy

Mile-high passion killers

High performance access to file storage

Singapore Airlines has asked cash-flush customers to refrain from making the beast with two backs while enjoying its A380 private suites between Singapore and Sydney, Reuters reports.

The airline's shiny new aircraft boasts 12 such suites with double beds, but the company has slapped a ban on couples joining the mile-high club during the seven-hour jaunt. It said: “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."

Since Singapore Airlines' website was this morning offering said suite for a cool 21,694 Singapore dollars (£7,202), it seems a little strong to deny customers the chance to indulge in a little airborne rumpy-pumpy for their money.

Indeed, Tony Elwood, who enjoyed some king-sized luxury on the inaugural flight with missus Julie, said: “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?"

His other half chipped in with: "They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters. I’d say they shouldn’t really complain, should they?” ®
