Diners have grabbed the chance to eat a meal onboard a parked plane.



Customers paid up to £360 to eat on the Singapore Airlines jet, with the offer rapidly selling out in the absence of international travel due to COVID-19.

Guests received a meal from the Singapore Airlines menu and frequent flyers could also cash in on points towards the meal. Around half of the 471 seats on the flight were available with social distancing measures in place.

It is the latest scheme from an airline in a bid to raise cash amid the lack of travel, with 'flights to nowhere' proving popular across Asia.

Australian airline Qantas recently sold out a sightseeing trip across the country that flew from Sydney and back.
