    Sex ban on the Airbus A380

    Steve Bleach got the lowdown on Singapore Airlines' 'no sex' rules for the double bed suites, and quizzed the first passengers

    Tony and Julie Elwood booked the first A380 double suite but the journalists clamouring to see inside their room prevented them from beating the sex ban

    The A380 may have the world’s first airborne double bed, but it won’t be put to the obvious use if Singapore Airlines has its way: “If couples used our double beds to engage in inappropriate activity, we would politely ask them to desist,” said the company’s Stephen Forshaw.

    “There are things that are acceptable on an aircraft and things that aren’t, and the rules for behaviour in our double beds are the same ones that apply throughout the aircraft.”
    In any case, the plane is as yet unchristened: Tony and Julie Elwood from Perth, Australia had booked the first A380 double suite, but hardly had a moment of privacy for a romantic kiss, let alone anything raunchier, as a parade of journalists came knocking on their door.
    Even so, they weren’t too impressed with Singapore’s strait-laced attitude. “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?” asked Tony, a vigorous 76. “Seems a bit strange.”
    “They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic, short of bringing round oysters,” said Julie, 51. “I’d say they shouldn’t really complain, should they?
    "Though I don’t think they’ll have anything to worry about from us — the flight is so busy with people coming to see the suites, we wouldn’t have the opportunity.”
  2. REFUND ! :upsidedown:
  3. Wow, the 1st class suite is like a small hotel room with a sliding door, but the partition can only go up to eye height (for safety reasons they say). I think that's the reason on the sex ban. If it can go up fully, I think it will give a total privacy.
  4. :lol: they'll just have to wait for richard branson to buy a few of these then!

  5. But the flights are soooo long from the US. How else are we to pass the time?
