Singapore Airlines says it won’t allow anyone to book a hotel room in a cabin on a commercial flight to Hawaii because of safety concerns, but will offer a reservation if that’s what they need.
Singapore Airlines said on Wednesday that it would start offering reservation tickets for passengers traveling on a single-aisle flight to Honolulu for the 2018-19 season.
The airline, which was recently acquired by Malaysia Airlines, says that it is trying to get passengers to book more rooms for the cabin, which seats between two and three.
The airline says that while they will not be offering seats for multiple people, it will be possible to book the room for as many as three people.
“We do not want to offer this option, but it is possible,” the airline said in a statement on Wednesday.
Singapore has had a hard time getting airlines to do the same thing in recent years, and has been forced to rely on airlines that cater to larger groups.
Malaysia Airlines also has a number of cabin upgrades, and it has been one of the most popular carriers for booking rooms for people on its flights to Europe.
The carrier’s cabin upgrade program was recently expanded to include two seats, but airlines like Air France-KLM have stopped offering that option.
On Thursday, Singapore Airlines added a number the ability to book one or two cabin upgrades for the first-class cabin for all its flights from 2019-2020.
This is not the first time Singapore Airlines has been struggling with the issue of cabin capacity.
The carrier had already announced that it will add seats to the first class cabin in 2019.
