Qantas Is Selling Fully Stocked Drink Trolleys To Help Our Isolation Blues!
Thanks to Covid-19 we may not be able to ‘fly the friendly skies’ anymore but we can take home the best part of the flight. The drinks trolley! Cause let’s be honest, the sound of that being wheeled down the isle is music to most traveller’s ears!
Qantas is now selling their old drink trolleys fully stocked with those adorable mini bottles of red and white wine, Champagne, and bar snacks.
The vintage bar carts were removed from the airline’s iconic Boeing 747 aircraft after operating for almost 50 years before retiring in July.
With plans to cut further costs, Qantas opened its memorabilia storage shed to the public on Wednesday, offering 1,000 Qantas 747 bar carts for sale from $947.70 each.
Each pre-loved cart comes complete with 40 mini bottles of red wine, 40 mini bottles of white and a bottle of Champagne from the airline’s business class cellar, Tim Tams, pajamas and an exclusive-to-Qantas first class Sheridan throw.
‘These pre-loved carts served Qantas and our customers well during their world travels from London and Los Angeles to Singapore and Santiago, with each one averaging around 2,000 flights,’ Qantas executive manager of product and service Phil Capps said.
‘While we no longer have use for them, they still have life in them, especially for those with an appreciation for aviation collectables and an eye for design. There has been huge demand for Qantas 747 memorabilia and Frequent Flyers have expressed keen interest to convert the bespoke in-flight trolley into everything from lamp stands to storage units.
‘The fact they come fully stocked with some of Qantas’ most popular on-board service items will hopefully inspire some high-flying fun at home.’
Mr Capps said customers have also been ordering the airline’s wine to enjoy at home while its ‘iso care kits’ featuring pajamas sold out within hours.
