Ok, read this story and tell me this isn’t the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard. Singapore Airlines has a new airplane, an A380 Superjumbo Jet. One of its features is the ability to pay for a suite in which you are supposed to enjoy unprecedented privacy. there is a double bed. Occupants have access to unlimited booze. But, since the suite’s walls don’t go all the way to the ceiling, it’s not really completely private, so no sex, please.
What is that? It’s either private, or it’s not. Why did they stop a few inches from the ceiling? Did they run out of material? Is there some structural reason why the walls don’t go to the ceiling? Please, someone, explain that one to me.
And how can they expect this to, well, fly? I’m sure paying for the suite costs an arm and a leg, and it’s obviously marketed to couples since they put a double bed in it. What were they expecting people to do in there, especially when privacy is one of the things played up in the advertisements?
This is going to sound horrible, but I love the fact that the first person objecting to the no sex rule was a 76-year-old man. Hell, I agree with him, and more power to him. I just can’t picture people my Grandma’s age wanting to get down and dirty anywhere but in a bed in a bedroom. But maybe it’s a good idea to have the no sex rule for the old folks. We wouldn’t want others to hear the creaking of joints and mistake them for the beginnings of a plane crash and an episode of Mayday. Yes, I know, that was evil.
