Singapore Airlines offers meals without flights

Tokyo (Japan), Oct 25: Diners in Singapore are enjoying meals on board an Airbus A380 parked at Changi Airport.
Singapore Airlines opened the restaurant in the world's biggest passenger plane for two weekends from Saturday. It hopes to raise revenue to help make up for the losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Customers have a choice of cabin class. The meals on offer include spicy Malay dishes with fish and shrimp or a Japanese fish dish. The prices range from about 38 to 480 US dollars.
A range of cabin crew uniforms are on display at the airport. Customers can also have their photos taken with crew members.
A man in his 20s said he enjoyed the meal and imagined that he was up in the sky.
Singapore Airlines has had to cancel most of its flights because of the pandemic. It reported a deficit of more than 760 million US dollars for the April-June quarter.
The carrier has cut 4,300 jobs, or about 15 percent of its workforce.
