Default Flight to no where

Ok this may sound silly and environmentalist will most certainly disagree but would there be demand for flights to no where? Imagine SQ taking a A350 ULR on flight for 17 hrs 1/4 round the world and back in 16 hrs or so.

Since its premium configured safe distancing is better managed than regular planes. Id reckon there might be a market but the cost may be an issue and Id reckon at least $3k plus per J seat.

Any takers?

Maybe not 17 hours but a few hours would be OK, drinks, dinner, watch a couple of films. I'd do it.

Interesting idea.
Just not sure whether air restrictions and the regulatory framework allows it.

I'm enjoying the break from being on any aircraft.
