QANTAS: buy a used, fully stocked 747 galley cart
Content of this Post:
The SMH is now reporting that some of the security issues being reported on including flaws in background checks, were also highlighted as vulnerabilities 10 years ago in a classified report, but have still not been addressed.
The opposition is naturally calling for an enquiry.
SOLD OUT of both full and half bar carts – before 5pm AEST
These carts come from the airline’s recently retired 747 aircraft before they were retired, and sent off to the airline graveyard. Qantas bid farewell to its last Qantas 747 in July
“These pre-loved carts served Qantas and our customers well during their world travels from London and Los Angeles to Singapore and Santiago, with each one averaging around 2,000 flights. While we no longer have use for them, they still have life in them, especially for those with an appreciation for aviation collectables and an eye for design.Phil Capps, Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service

Remembering that you can cancel and rebook any fares through to the end of February 2022, this offer is worth booking some speculative travel.
I usually value status credits over points, but triple points is a good deal. Anyway if a good bonus status credits deal comes up – I can always cancel my triple points booking and rebook using the credit to gain the the status deal. Sorry guys, you can’t combine deals.
Qantas didn’t come down in the last shower, so don’t expect this triple points deal to be giving you the best fare prices (I haven’t checked this), and the same applies to those double status points offers if they return. I have no inside knowledge, but a triple points offer, often comes just before a double status credits offer. Just sayin’.
Would I love a used Qantas galley trolly = YES!
Will I pay close to AU$1,500 = NO! – OK, I’m thinking about it. Oh dear, left it too late.
If you want one of these – I suggest you get in quick.
Call me a tight wad, but given the mass beaching of Jumbo’s going on in the Californian plane boneyard, I think there might be a bit of a flooded market.
