Hungry for donuts at 30,000 feet? If you’re flying Singapore Airlines in first or business class from Los Angeles International Airport, you might be in luck.
The carrier struck a deal with iconic Los Angeles area purveyor Randy’s Donuts, which is delivering the sweets daily to the airline’s caterer. We spoke with James Boyd, Singapore’s spokesman, about how the deal went down.
Brian Sumers: Why the tie between Singapore Airlines and Randy’s Donuts?
James Boyd: Well, it’s part of our light bites menu. So basically between meals and whenever passengers are feeling a little bit peckish, we have a whole menu — everything from noodles to Singapore Chicken Rice, in some menu cycles. We also try to be reflective of the local communities that we serve and so Randy’s Donuts is such an institution in Los Angeles, we wanted to give people a little bit of a taste of home.
