The Coronavirus pandemic has hit the airline industry the most and Singapore Airlines, probably crumbling from the pressure, turned its seats into a pop-up restaurant.

Singapore Airlines, in a way to deal with the sinking business, have turned one of their A380 jumbos into pop-up restaurants. Singapore Airlines has fired thousands of employees and has had to ground almost all its planes this year, and decided to go this way.
For those who don’t know, the A380 Jumbo is the world’s biggest passenger jet.
Hundreds of people have bought airline food on the Singapore Airline, Jumbo A380, for as much as Sg$642 ($470).
All the 900 seats that were opened up for lunch on October 24 and October 25 were sold out within half an hour of bookings after its opening on Monday.
Given the huge demand for this restaurant, Singapore Airlines have announced that the restaurant will remain open for an additional two days. Also, on all the four dates, lunch and dinner will both be served.

The seats in business class are priced at S$321, whereas the premium economy class’ are priced at S$96.30. Also, customers can pay with frequent flyer miles.
