Second chance: Singapore Airlines adds additional Restaurant A380 @Changi seatings

Last Updated:

SIA is adding at least 4 more sessions of Restaurant A380 @Changi on 24, 25, 31 Oct and 1 Nov 2020. Join the waitlist and get ready for round 2!

Restaurant A380 @Changi opened for sale last night, and as expected, sold out in record time. If you didn’t manage to snag a ticket, however, there’s some hope yet. 

Singapore Airlines has announced that it will be adding additional seatings for Restaurant A380 @Changi on the following dates:

  • 24 October 2020 (Saturday)
  • 25 October 2020 (Sunday)
  • 31 October 2020 (Saturday)
  • 1 November 2020 (Sunday)

It’s not yet clear when these new seats will be available for sale. SIA’s public affairs team told me the following: 

Customers on the wait list will be asked to provide a preference for the date, time and class of dining. They will be contacted by Singapore Airlines when we are ready to start take bookings

You’ll note that 24 and 25 October are the existing dates for Restaurant A380 @Changi, and it seems like the new sessions will be dinner timings. 31 October and 1 November, on the other hand, are new dates altogether. 

Singapore Airlines mentioned that it sold roughly half the seats on each aircraft due to social distancing, which works out to ~236 seats per plane. This means they’re adding at least 1,400 more seats to this event (assuming 1 more session on 24/25 Oct, and 2 sessions each on 31 Oct & 1 Nov), possibly more. 

As reported earlier today, Singapore Airlines has opened a waitlist for those interested in a second bite at the cherry.

Interestingly enough, this waitlist option is only available for Economy, Premium Economy and Business Class. Suites was available earlier but now appears to be gone.

For those of you who already secured your tickets last night, you’ll hopefully have submitted the supplementary details form as well. This is absolutely vital, as the information is used to apply for the airport pass you’ll need to access the transit area of Changi Terminal 3, where the event is staged. 

This is also where passengers have the option to indicate any dietary restrictions, and in the case of Business and First Class passengers, their meal choices. Singapore Airlines has released some additional photos of the menu options, and I have to say, Shermay Lee’s Peranakan options don’t look as appealing as I was hoping they’d be.

I guess I’m not too enthused about getting three small prawns and a small piece of fried chicken as the sum total of my main course in Suites (if you’re in Business Class, you don’t even get the fried chicken!), and based on the chatter in the Restaurant A380 @Changi chat group, neither are most people.

The good news is that it’s not too late to change your meal selection. Simply email [email protected] with your reservation number and indicate that you’d like to make a change. There have been several successful data points for meal changes. 

Even though I have a bad feeling about this, I’ll be sticking with the Peranakan menu, if only for the sake of writing the report. Ah, the things I do…

Conclusion

It didn’t make much sense for Singapore Airlines to only run a couple of seatings when it was clear how much demand there was for this event. I’m glad to see they’ve created more opportunities for people to attend, and hopefully some would-be scalpers are having a very bad day. 

Good luck to everyone who’s trying out for round 2! Let us know how it goes.

Tv news reported the sessions for 24th and 25th are for dinner.

There are only 3 aircraft with Suites to choose from in the first place (9V-SKS, SKU and SKV), as the other four A380s are parked in Alice Springs, Australia. So it is understandable that they have to reuse the same planes.

$600 for 2 night stay at Capitol Kempinski with meals at 15 Stamford or 3hrs eating 3x prawns and 1x fried chicken. Tough choice really. People and the things they do for the gram.

Where to find 2 nights at kempinski for $600 now?

people with enough disposable income do what makes them happy, not compare 5c 10c.

Absolutely right! I have flown enough in suites yet I am unwilling to pay $600 for sats catering. I need to earn more! I can understand the novelty of it. Perhaps they get zen or some other restaurant to do the catering..or is it wishful thinking. Enjoy the prawns!

I guess it is for those who love flying, but can never afford to fly first class(and in extension try the food). So this is their only chance to..
