You've got a golden ticket!

Let's all hope the plane doesn't crash and kill all 102 passengers including all project related CEOs, VPs, VIPs & journalists resulting in the bankruptcy of Airbus, millions of dollars lost by Singapore Airlines, world-wide headlines and the embarrassment of Mr Hayward for spending such a huge amount of money on a Willy Wonka style ticket only for it to turn into glorified Titanic story (but in the air obviously and a serious lack of snakes too)

Fingers crossed!!

For $100k...

...I hope he has a choice of in-flight caterers. Otherwise, I can't imagine all that money would fix airline food.

Retro movies

....maybe its time to bringback those classic "Airport" disaster movies!

....they have rehashed just about everything else recently!

.......maybe it could be hijacked or be sucked into some mega storm

.........then the passengers get sick with some psycho virus

............. and the pilot dies of heart attack

....................and is all set to crash into the bejing or london olympics

It couldnt possibly go the way of the titanic

By the time they finally get the thing built and out of the hanger and into the air there wont be any icebergs left for it to crash into.

What we really want to know is...

$100K - Is this Australian or US? What was the price of his ticket in Beckhams?

How big is his cabin in milliwales and how volumous in grapefruit?

how much leg room does he have in double decker busses?

How high does the plane fly in canary wharfs?

How late was the delay of the iinaugural flight and how long will the flight last in standard conex south central minutes?

How fast does the aircraft travel in sheepsecs?

I wont even ask for the IT angle.

@ Retro Movies

You forgot the "marooned on a desert island following a plane crash" scenario!

I didn't read TFA, but:

Is suite class an actual suite?

If so, I'd presume that this is a definite potential mile high club entry that doesn't involve getting arrested at the airport.

Did the earth move for you? No, but I moved around it.

Bit expensive for a shag mind.

Carbon offset

I wonder what the carbon offset on the ticket would be and if he is going to pay it?

If he has so much money I have a nice credit card bill he could clear...
