Hong Kong Airlines is offering inflight items for sale, mostly obsolete items that haven’t been in service in recent years, including inflight crockery, limited edition amenity kits, pillows, duvets and wine, as well as a few collectible items.
On Wednesday (July 21, 2021), Hong Kong Airlines announced the launch of a sale of inflight service items including crockery, limited edition amenity kits, pillows, duvets and wine. Most of the items are obsolete and haven’t been in service with the carrier in recent years. Aviation fans may also be able to acquire some collectible items that are no longer in production. The bespoke e-commerce platform, Epix Products will be the exclusive channel for the sale which starts on July 23, 2021 on epixproducts.com. The merchandise will be organized in different bundles with a mix of products that caters to everyone.
In Wednesday’s announcement, Hong Kong Airlines’ Director of Service Delivery, Chris Birt, said,
“To prevent wastage and disposal of obsolete or surplus items we have in storage, we have decided to put them up for sale after seeing how favourably the public has responded to similar airline inflight product sales. These items can be used or consumed at home or over a picnic with family and friends. We also hope that they will bring back fond memories of past travels with Hong Kong Airlines and build excitement as we all wait patiently to step onboard again soon.”
An example of the items on offer includes a half-size trolley fully-stocked with Business Class tableware, cutlery, locally designed amenity kits, a blanket and pillow with cover and 24 bottles of wine. A full size trolley will also be offered with a greater quantity of the service items mentioned, plus 36 bottles of wine. Product bundles will start at HK $1,788 (US $230) for home sets and HK $ 8,888 (US $ 1,144) for a fully stocked half-size cart.
