You no longer need to play the fastest fingers first game to score a seat for the popular Restaurant A380@Changi dining experience offered by Singapore Airlines.
The airline announced on Monday evening (Oct 12) that additional seats will now be offered after the original allocation sold out in just half an hour.
And to get a chance to book a slot this time round, you only need to get yourself on the waitlist on KrisShop.com. Click on the “Notify Me” link on the cabin class you’re after and then wait to be contacted.
In a statement posted on Facebook, the airline thanked customers for the “overwhelming support” and said the waitlist has been reopened so those who are keen can “indicate your interest for this unique dining experience”.
The original two seatings were for three-hour lunches on Oct 24 and 25 and those were promptly snapped up when they went on sale on Monday.
There will now be six additional seatings for meals on the double-decker superjumbo aircraft: Dinner on Oct 24 and 25, as well as lunch and dinner on Oct 31 and Nov 1.
The dining experience in economy costs S$50, premium economy costs S$90 and business class is S$300. There’s no link currently for the Suites option, which was available during the initial offer for S$600. These prices are pre-tax.
As the event is being held in the transit area of Changi Airport, "certain conditions must be met" in order for diners to participate in the Restaurant A380@Changi experience, said SIA.
"One of the conditions is that SIA will temporarily retain the passports of the diners during the experience. The passports will be kept secured under lock and key," the airline said.
