Buy a (Fully Stocked) Qantas 747 Drinks Cart - Half Cart from $974.70 or Full from $1474.70 (or Pay with Qantas Points) @ Qantas

2820

Just such an unusual once off sale we published on our website this morning that I had to share it here too. As Qantas has retired all their 747s, they're selling off their drinks carts. Fully stocked. Their release below:

Qantas is opening its memorabilia storage shed to the Australian public, offering 1000 Qantas 747 galley carts stocked with a range of items from champagne and Australian red and white wine to Tim Tams, PJs and an exclusive-to-Qantas First Class Sheridan throw.

The bar carts were removed from the airline’s recently retired and much-loved 747 aircraft before they were flown to the Californian desert.

Qantas operated various incarnations of the 747 “Queen of the Skies” for almost 50 years before retiring the jumbo jet six months early as part of its response to the COVID-19 crisis. The farewell of the last Qantas 747 in July inspired an outpouring of affection and nostalgia from the Australian public.

Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service, Phil Capps, said the airline wanted to offer up a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to own a physical piece of the 747 legacy, particularly at a time when travel was out of reach for many.

“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.

“There has been huge demand for Qantas 747 memorabilia and Frequent Flyers have expressed keen interest to convert the bespoke inflight 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 added, “We know people have been ordering Qantas Wine to enjoy at home and our Qantas ‘iso care kits’ featuring the PJs sold out within hours. The bar carts offer the trifecta of wine, PJs and a piece of aviation history.”

The 747 half bar cart features:

A Qantas 747 half bar cart
40 mini bottles white wine and 40 mini bottles of red wine & 1 bottle of Champagne from the Business class cellar
2 Qantas Business Class amenity kit featuring ASPAR Travel Essentials
1 Sheridan throw made exclusively for Qantas First Class made of 100% combed cotton
2 Qantas Business Class sleeper suits M/L & L/XL (suitable for most shapes and sizes)

Half bar carts will cost $974.70 including delivery (or 169,000 Qantas Points). A small number of full size carts will be available with double the items for $1474.70 including delivery (or 256,000 Qantas Points). Delivery to metro locations in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth only.

The Qantas 747 carts will be on sale today via https://wine.qantas.com/

      But it is RRP…..

      Doesn't mean it's not cool.
      Not sure if I want my ps5 preorder or this lol

      the cost of all these items when you're flying would be triple. definitely a bargain!

          Call me crazy, but why the hell would you want this in your home? I'd feel embarrased for someone if I saw this in their house.

              @garage sale: Lol honestly if I saw that at the side of the road, I would probibly grab it for the coolness factor. However I doubt my wife would let me bring it inside the house.

                @ialam99: It depends on your place. We have a converted warehouse so “industrial” style stuff looks really good in it. I got an old industrial wheeled stainless steel flour container and it works really well as a shoe container. I wouldn’t pay these prices but if you look online the prices aren’t that outrageous.

            @DisabledUser110907: It would be great if it came with a range of hostie uniforms for those quiet evening entertainments.

            Of course I will charge the Airline prices for the experience of course and maybe it will offset those public transport fares a little

      It's a deal in the sense that it could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for collectors

        That would make all artwork and paintings a deal.

        probably is actually a great time, will be a lot of deals to be had on second hand planes, staff desperate for jobs and airports looking to make deals to just get income. So assuming you aren't looking to profit immediately it is probably an awesome time to get the ball rolling.

          So assuming you aren't looking to profit immediately…

          Isn't that the business plan for any airline startup, irrespective of timing? ;-)

            @Chazzozz: pretty much. Actually in the last few years it seems to be the business plan for a whole raft of businesses.

    Definitely the oddest deal ive seen for a while. With how overpriced in-flight alcohol is, you are paying through the teeth for 40 mini bottles. That is one expensive (and ugly imo) lamp stand or storage unit!

      Just checked out ebay and airline drinks trolleys sell for about $300-$400. So I think $500+ for some pyjamas and plonk is a bit rich for me. But I still would love one.

        They have learned from their mistake a few weeks ago by selling the pajamas and snack pack too cheap. This one is now priced at a premium.
