Singapore Airlines, – the first airline to put the new giant Airbus in service – has today announced that it will sell all of its tickets for the first ever commercial flight of the A380 on eBay. Furthermore, all of the revenue arising from these tickets will be donated for charity. This is a very nice move from the airline, who has also announced, that the demand for the tickets for this special flight were so high, that it prefers this way of handling all interested parties. As known, traditional airline pricing always tries to follow the current market demand, but this is a special occasion, where the pricing and fare department of Singapore Airlines will let the market itself decide on the fares, which are projected to go over the clouds probably. Knowing that it will all go to support some good causes, people will probably open their vallets even more, which is a very nice way of using such special power to raise money for those in need.
The first flight will take place “in the month of October, 2007” between Singapore and Sydney, with tickets going on sale only a few weeks earlier. So don’t rush to eBay just yet, maybe it’s best to sign up for the newsletter to be among the first to know about the date when tickets go on sale! This flight will definiately by an aviation history milestone, and Singapore Airlines will provide each passenger with a special certificate, to be hung on your wall, to be placed in your safe, or simply to prove your participation to your grandchildren! 🙂
