According to The Telegraph, the airline held an online charity auction to drum up publicity for the flight, SQ380, and people paid between Rs.22,175 and Rs.40.65 lakhs for their seats, raising Rs.4.99 crore for three social service bodies.
For the record, there were passengers from 35 countries, 11 among whom were Indians. While the youngest was a 10-month old boy from Singapore, the oldest was a 91-year old Californian for whom it was a dream journey because he had earlier flown in the world’s first Boeing 747 commercial flight between New York and London in 1970.
