I see where a QF " fan " bought an A380 Business Class seat recently.
Lets face it , it's probably the only way for a very long time before he will get to sit in one again on a flight so he might just as well enjoy the "seating Simulator ", close his eyes, play aircraft sounds and pretend he is flying.
He Might even get the missus to serve him a few drinks or is that being sexist??
Anyway I hope he enjoys his purchase cos there's a long wait ahead for real flight in one.

Sometimes people need to think before they type...
Is there a problem with a bit of light humour?
apart from the fact that you don't even no what the person bought, it was not funny at all.
You are quite right , should have gone to spec savers. Corrected now.
You must be a very serious person not to see a bit of " Monty Python " type humour in it.

This is a very misogynistic post Rod. Might be worth having a rethink before posting. Put the wine glass down maybe?
It's a very sad world when we can't have a little humour without offending someone in the slightest.
All I wanted to portray was that the buyer could set it up in his house and enjoy a bit pseudo travel whilst waiting for overseas flights to resume in the future. Having his wife act as the Flight attendant surely does not offend anyone or does it?, and they could always reverse the roles in turn . I think it would be a great bit of fun to use the seat for this but apparently some of you have no sense of humour at all.
For goodness sakes , lighten up a bit the world is too serious as it is!!!

I think the issue is you assumed it was a he that bought it but the idea of the close partner he/she/they/them serving drinks is just lovely, and well deserved considering the outlay. Hopefully as a collectable it will hold its value.
What you have written is exactly what I was trying to portray.
It was in no way meant to be putting women down I just assumed it was a bloke who bought it and the role play was as I imagined.
If it was a female who bought it then there would be no change in what I envisaged would take place except there would be a role change to a close partner / husband or even another female to act as a flight attendant in this case.
Why do some people make life so difficult and word perfect , can't we just see it as it would be in a nice way?
I would love to have one of those seats set up in my house and on occasions have a bit of a different dinner/ drinks evening much as would happen in flight.
Nothing wrong with that surely , it could be a lot of enjoyment in these depressing times.
I hope whoever bought the seat/s does put them to good use and enjoys them.

So what was the point of this thread again?
If you can't already see the point then there's no point in Pointing it out again!

Pointless. It's a Seinfeld script.

Rod, I don't think you'd find it quite as humorous if your wife/partner served you a "snack box" on a 4.5 hour "pretend" Brisbane to Perth flight 😀
I would be just as annoyed as I have been on several Brisbane-Perth flights when I was served a "crap " box.
My wife ( if she were alive ) would never have had the audacity to serve such rubbish and she used to be a Flight Attendant so she would have been perfect for the "pretend flight ".
Would be so nice to be able to do my " pretend " flight with my wife!!! But alas it's not possible so I only have dreams left now.
Rod mate, when you're in a hole, stop digging.
