British Airways is selling off unique airplane items from its retired Boeing B747 fleet.
British Airways on Monday announced the sale of items from its retired Boeing B747 fleet for frustrated fliers to recreate the airline experience in the comfort of their own home.
This is the first time BA has given people the opportunity “to get their hands on items from British Airways aircraft which have circled the globe hundreds of times,” the airline said in a press release.
Travellers can order “inflight dining items such as William Edwards plates, soup bowls, cups, saucers and even a butter dish for reasonable prices,” the airline said.
“Those who want to take it a step further can pick up bread baskets, hot towels (which naturally arrive cold), hot towel plates, champagne flutes, coasters and even the Club World casserole dish.”
“This is an incredible one-off opportunity for people to bring the magic of flying with British Airways into their own homes. We know that these special items will fly and we are delighted to be able to offer them in time for Christmas to give people the opportunity to make it memorable during a difficult year,” said Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, in a statement.
In addition, a limited supply of trolleys and canisters from the airline’s Boeing 747’s will also be available for purchase.
The sale has started on Monday.
In my honest opinion, instead of scraping these things off, British airways is doing a great job by selling these items to those who are genuinely interested in buying these items.
