Serve up your own slice of British Airways history

You can pick up a piece of British Airways memorabilia as the airline is selling off surplus inflight crockery, glassware and blankets, and even trolleys.

For the first time in its history, British Airways has decided to unlock the doors to its warehouse this Christmas to give customers and aviation fans the unique opportunity to get their hands on items from British Airways aircraft which have circled the globe hundreds of times.

Customers and collectors can order bespoke British Airways inflight dining items such as William Edwards plates, soup bowls, cups, saucers and even a butter dish for reasonable prices, allowing them to create an authentic First Class flying experience at home over the festive period.

Bread baskets, hot towels, hot towel plates, champagne flutes, coasters and even the Club World casserole dish can be picked up. And customers can relax in slippers and a day blanket which are also on sale.

For a limited time there is the opportunity to purchase a piece of history with items such as aircraft trolleys and canisters taken from the Boeing 747, which British Airways has now fully retired. 

Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ Director of Brand and Customer Experience, said,

This is an incredible one-off opportunity for people to bring the magic of flying with British Airways in to 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.
