British Airways sells accessories from planes so travellers can 'recreate' cabin experience

Hot towel plate or four-rack oven, anyone?

The global pandemic has largely brought many people's travel plans to a halt this year, with flights grounded and border restrictions introduced across the world.

However, those missing the jet-set experience can now recreate the magic at home (if hot towels and cabin blankets are what you miss most about flying).

British Airways has launched a new homeware portal, where the airline is selling off accessories, crockery and textiles from its aircraft.

The What A Buy concept divides the airline's products, much like its air fares, into classes. The general category consists of a set of six white mugs from the World Traveller Plus cabin, as well as a four-shelf oven rack, used to heat up in-flight meals, which is up for grabs for £50 ($67).

The Club World category is designed to replicate the business class experience, with items such as a set of six steel bread baskets (£10) and square plates (£38 for five), used on the airline's Japan routes.

The First Class category is full of the airline's premium in-flight collectables from William Edwards-branded china tableware to a herringbone-patterned day blanket (£9).

A set of six dinner plates costs £40, while a plate designed to offer hot towels around the cabin goes for £20 for a pack of five.

"This is an incredible one-off opportunity for people to bring the magic of flying with British Airways into their own homes," said Carolina Martinoli, British Airways's director of brand and customer experience, in a statement.

"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."

Stock is predominately taken from the surplus supply or the airline's retired jumbo jets, and some popular items, such as drinks trolleys and Club World slippers, have already sold out since the website launched on Monday, November 23.

British Airways, which has cut thousands of jobs as its profits plummeted amid the pandemic, also sold off millions of pounds worth of art earlier this year to boost its finances.
