A380 Beds For Sleeping, Says Airline

 Considering the areas of aircraft that have served the carnal desires of their occupants, it would seem likely that the private suite with double bed that Singapore Airlines has installed on its A380 would be creating a little turbulence of its own on every flight. But if the airline has anything to do with it (and good luck with this) the first-class section will not become headquarters of the Mile High Club. "If couples used our double beds to engage in inappropriate activity, we would politely ask them to desist," company spokesman Stephen Forshaw told the Times of London. "There are things that are acceptable on an aircraft and things that aren't, and the rules for behavior in our double beds are the same ones that apply throughout the aircraft."

And that seems a shame say the first occupants of the exclusive space. Tony and Julie Elwood paid plenty to recline in the suite on the A380's first flight from Singapore to Sydney last week and said the accommodations and the rule are at odds. "So they'll sell you a double bed, and give you privacy and endless champagne — and then say you can't do what comes naturally?" Tony told the Times. "Seems a bit strange." Julie agreed. "They seem to have done everything they can to make it romantic short of bringing round oysters."

Yeah right.... Singapore Airlines is living in a pipedream... >:D ::rofl::

You're allowed to do anything except for getting caught . . .
I'd also be interested in a definition of 'inappropriate activity' and how you can 'politely' ask a couple engaged in such activity to 'desist'.

Now they'll have to mount Big Brother cameras... so they can sell the footage.

I sure wouldn't want to be the one to "politely ask them to desist"...

Hmm... think they would mind if I take some DIY tools and lock it from inside?  ::angel::
