ICYMI, a man from Jakarta, on January 5, took social distancing to a whole new level by booking an entire flight for himself and his wife. Richard Muljadi, a socialite based in Jakarta, Indonesia, booked the entire flight to prevent exposure to Covid-19, and ensure a safe journey to Bali for himself and his wife.
MAN BOOKS ENTIRE FLIGHT TO AVOID COVID-19
The news went viral after Muljadi took to Instagram to announce the news to his social media followers. The man, who is famous for living an extravagant lifestyle, had shared a picture of an empty flight, with he and his wife being the only passengers.
Muljadi, who had travelled from Jakarta to Bali on a Batik Air flight, did not reveal the money he paid to book a private flight. However, he did mention that he booked as many seats as possible, instead of chartering the flight, as the first option was cheaper than the latter.
This is not the first time that we have heard of something extravagant like this happen. Individuals with enough resources and money, scared of travelling on a flight with other passengers during the Covid-19 outbreak, have chartered flights earlier. And it happened closer home in India.
