Can Singapore Airlines really ban the mile high club?

All the elements are there for those who have been dying to enter the “mile-high-club” in style, but Singapore Airlines has put the kibosh on any plans randy passengers might have for raunchy trysts at 35,000 feet aboard its new A380 superjumbo jets.

Though their new A380 offers private first class suites featuring the world’s first airborne full-sized beds, Singapore Airlines has made it clear that inflight sexual relations in the new luxurious cabins are not welcome.

“All we ask of customers, wherever they are on our aircraft, is to observe standards that don’t cause offence to other customers and crew,” the airline told Reuters in a statement.

The reason for the decision by Singapore Airlines seems to have something to do with the fact that though the suites have doors, the walls enclosing them are not soundproof nor do they go all the way up to the ceiling.

That means aggressive love making on flights might distract other passengers.

However, there really is no way to enforce the no-sex rule is there?

After all, planes are notoriously noisy and if one were to hang out a do not disturb sign and show a bit of discretion during intimacy, it hardly seems likely that anyone would be the wiser about what goes on behind closed doors, if you get my drift.

Besides, people have been having sex in airplane bathrooms and underneath blankets in plain view during flights for years.

Heaven only knows what they’ll be getting up to if given a private cabin. It’s just human nature.

Singapore Airlines is the first airline to begin commercial flights with the A380.

The airline commenced its inaugural service between Singapore and Sydney, Australia last week.

More airlines are expected to launch A380 service in the next year.

No word from any of them yet on whether they will regulate sexual relations onboard flights or turn a blind eye to it.
