Ebay sale was a nice move for Singapore Airlines

The first seats for the inaugural flight of the Sinagpore Airlines Airbus A380 have now been sold on Ebay.

We covered the story a week or so ago.

The BBC reports today that the airline has flogged two tickets for a mammoth £50,000 - a first class seat would ordinarily sell for around £1,700 each.

In quite a nice touch for Singapore Airlines, which clearly could have made a packet from the sale, any money raised through sales on Ebay will go to two childrens' hospitals in Sydney, Australia, and Medecins sans Frontieres.
