No rooting on Singapore-Sydney route

Isn't asking people not to have sex in Singapore Airlines' new Airbus, newly fitted out with double beds in first class on the Singapore-Sydney route, sort of like a making a public statement that if you want to join the Mile High Club in comfort then 'The Singapore Girl' is the airline to book with?


  1. Never wanted to join the Mile High Club before - after all, who wants a knee-trembler in a confined space that smells of other people's farts? Not me, even if they are first-class farts. But this - come on. They're just asking to be called Nookie Air.

  2. Of course it is. Presumably, that's the point.

  3. Some years ago there were incidents where Air NZ flight crew performed sexual favours for passengers. When this became public a scapegoat was identified, named, blamed and fired. She was unceremoniously dumped, smeared with allegations of alcoholism and drug taking. Crews were told to quieten down some or else face the same shameful fate as their work mate. Still, flight bookings on Air NZ went up for a while. I guess some people were hopeful. Could be a good marketing pull to market a pull, if you get what I mean.
