Not too long ago we reported in WingMag about the last flight of a Boeing 747 for Qantas. Many will remember the special kangaroo greeting. Also on the part of Qantas a certain sadness about the “Queen of the Skies” is noticeable. So the Australian airline is offering a special 747 memorabilia for sale, perhaps also as a way of coping with grief.

Collectors and 747 enthusiasts now have to be fast, because the product is limited to 1000 pieces. They are original 747 half bar carts, packed full of goodies. For about 1000 AUS dollars you get not only the half bar cart. ut also 80 mini bottles of wine and a big bottle of champagne. But the 747 Souvenir does not only provide for the culinary well-being. It also contains two Business Class Amenity Kits, two Business Class Pyjamas and a First Class blanket from the Australian luxury brand Sheridan.

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. 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.

Phil Capps, Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service

Anyone who has gotten the desire for such a 747 memorabilia must be fast – and live in the right place. Although delivery is included in the purchase price, it is only available to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. In any case, it’s a great idea from Qantas. Perhaps in the near future American and European airlines will take it as a model for themselves.
