For anyone feeling nostalgic for the golden age of travel, Qantas opens its souvenir storage shed to the Australian public

A thousand Qantas 747 kitchen carts, stocked with items ranging from champagne and Australian red and white wine to Tim Tams, Qantas-exclusive first-class pajamas and a Sheridan throw, go on sale Thursday

Bar carts were removed from the airline’s recently withdrawn planes and 747s before the planes were sent to the California desert

Qantas operated various incarnations of the 747 « Queen of the Skies » for nearly 50 years before withdrawing the jumbo six months earlier as part of its response to the COVID-19 crisis

Phil Capps, executive director of products and services at Qantas, said the airline wanted to deliver a physical part of the 747’s heritage

« These pre-loved carts have served Qantas and our customers well as they travel around the world from London and Los Angeles to Singapore and Santiago, each averaging around 2,000 flights. Although we no longer use them, they still have life in them, especially for those who appreciate aeronautical collectibles and design.
