The initiative—an attempt to diversify revenue streams and circumvent the difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic—proved an improbable success. In September, a “sightseeing” flight to nowhere advertised by Australian airline Qantas sold out in less than 10 minutes. According to CEO Alan Joyce, that probably made it the “fastest selling flight in Qantas history.”Now it appears to have been beaten. This week, a Qantas flight to nowhere that promised passengers the chance to view a rare supermoon from 40,000 feet sold out in the “record time” of two-and-a-half minutes. In September, Singapore Airlines was forced to cancel their roundabout flight following condemnation from environmental experts and activists.
