SINGAPORE Airlines first class area of its new Airbus A380 contains 12 private suites complete with double beds.
Long haul luxury, you might think.
Potential problem, says the airline.
They are worried in case passengers try to take advantage of this new level of comfort and privacy to join the Mile High Club.
The suites are not sound-proofed and not completely sealed and the airline has asked those who use them to refrain from hanky panky.
And they have asked the occupants to observe standards that "don’t cause offence to other customers and crew".
I don’t know anyone who is a member of the Mile High Club.
Richard Branson has tried it, apparently, but then he can as he owns a fleet of airliners.
Mind you, some long haul flights I’ve been on have been so tedious that anything might be a welcome distraction although, even at dead of night over the polar ice cap, there always seems to be a queue for the loo.
And a combination of half a dozen fed up travellers waiting outside and the aromatic confines of a lavatory are hardly conducive to a romantic assignation.
For those who don’t want to risk the embarrassment of attempting it on a charter flight to Benidorm, a company in Gloucestershire is offering a Mile High trip in a Piper Aztec, a small private jet renowned for its "long endurance and stable handling".
The rear of the aircraft has been converted into a private boudoir and flights, that go up to the required 5,280 feet, start from £350 for 20 minutes in the air and rise to the VIP trip at £840 that provides an hour’s flight time.
This may be cheaper than flying first class on Singapore Airlines and is guaranteed to offend no one’s sensibilities but the question remains - why bother?
After all, does height really matter?
