British Airways is giving aviation fans the chance to recreate a First Class flying experience at home - by selling some of the items from its Boeing 747 planes.

That's because the airline is delving into its warehouse and selling heaps of items from its planes online.

We're talking drinks trolleys, crockery from First Class including William Edwards china sets, and heaps of extras such as slippers, quilts, socks and hot towels (the latter come cold, of course).

There are even oven racks if you're keen.

The items are already available on whatabuy.co.uk and when we took a look, some were already selling out! (The First Class items are here if you're after those specifically).

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."

Aviation fans can recreate the in-flight experience at home

Those looking to bag a piece of aviation history will also find some items from the airline's Boeing 747 aircraft, now fully retired from the fleet.

If you do buy any items, the airline is encouraging customers to share photographs of themselves using the items in their own homes tagging @British_Airways and using the hashtag #BAathome.

Crockery from First Class is up for grabs

The pandemic has caused global travel restrictions and seen airlines around the world grounding planes and cancelling flights.

However, that hasn't stopped airlines from coming up with quirky ways to recreate the flying experience for fans on the ground. For example, Singapore Airlines transformed one of its A380 planes into a pop-up restaurant, while Thai Airways opened an aircraft-themed restaurant in its Bangkok headquarters office.

Meanwhile, other airlines such as Qantas have been offering ' flights to somewhere ' on domestic routes to give travellers a chance to do some sightseeing. The airline also launched a 'flight to nowhere' earlier this year which sold out in minutes.
