All the joy of plane food, without having to leave the ground. | Image: Singapore Airlines Amidst plunging revenues due to the pandemic, Singapore Airlines is turning two of its Airbus A380 planes parked at Changi Airport into impromptu restaurants on October 24th and 25th, and it’s proved surprisingly popular. Bloomberg reports that all seats at the restaurants sold out within 30 minutes of bookings opening, as people rushed to recapture the excitement of balancing a tiny meal on an even tinier fold-down airline table.

Flights at Singapore’s main Changi airport, one of Asia’s busiest hubs, were disrupted for the second time in a week due to drone sightings, authorities said.Eighteen flights were delayed and seven diverted due to the proximity of drones to the airport, according to Singapore’s Civil Aviation Authority, CAAS.The incident comes less than a week after one runway was suspended at Changi and dozens of flights were delayed due to drone sightings.“Fifteen departures and three arrivals were delayed and seven flights were diverted due to bad weather and unauthorised drone activities,” CAAS said in a statement on Tuesday.“Members of the public are reminded that the authorities take a serious view of errant operations of unmanned aircraft which may pose threats to aviation or endanger the personal safety of others.”The agency said offenders could be fined up to $20,000 Singapore dollars (£11.596) and faced 12 months in prison.

Singapore Airlines relaunched flagship non-stop service between Newark Liberty International Airport and its home base in Changi Airport in Singapore this month.Singapore operates the flight using its new fleet of Airbus A350-900 ULR airliners.According to Singapore Airlines SVP of sales and marketing Campbell Wilson, the ULR's range gives the airline new network route options that weren't available previously.In recent years, the airline's rivals have built up a really lucrative business by connecting South Asia and Southeast Asia with destinations in North America.These fifth freedom routes are a rarity because it involves Singapore Airlines selling tickets on flights between two foreign countries."Countries quite jealously guard the rights from their hubs, so at best we can fly daily on these fifth freedom legs," the veteran airline executive explained.
The Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900 ULR.Singapore AirlinesSingapore Airlines relaunched the longest flight in the world last week connecting its home base at Changi Airport with Newark Liberty International Airport just outside of New York City.The flight covers 10,000 miles and can last more than 18 hours.While it has exceptional range and capability, the A340-500 was a relic of the 1990s, and the thirst of its four engines proved too uneconomical to sustain."The A340-500 is a four-engined aircraft designed in the 90s and purchased when fuel was $19 a barrel but when fuel increased $119 a barrel the technological limitations of that time was exposed," Singapore Airlines senior vice president of sales and marketing, Campbell Wilson told Business Insider in an interview."It is the only one that is, in our view, capable of doing this mission economically."
At Drake's concert at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night, the air was filled with more than just the roar of 18,000 fans.There were also 88 micro drones flying around the rapper during two songs in his two-hour show, synched up with his tracks Elevate and Look Alive.They hovered around with bright lights, changing colors from red to blue to white, like a swarm of large fireflies twinkling above the rapper.The elaborate choreography was coordinated between Drake's production team and Verity Studios, a Swiss company that boasts investments from Sony and Kitty Hawk, the flying car startup from Google's founder Larry Page."With the current technology that we have, Drake is as good as it gets," said Rafaello D'Andrea, the founder of Verity Studios.The drones use an indoor GPS system mapped out by their own Kedge Localization Unit -- think a small central satellite scanning every corner of a room and sending coordinates to the drones.
