It seems Malaysia Airlines is going to follow Qantas and British Airways, by selling off its excess amenity items to the public.
- Pyjamas set
- Amenity kits
- In-flight Duvet,
In normal times, these would only available to its premium passengers- but now, you can buy them for yourself.
Items vary in price- the Business Class Aspinal of London amenity kit will cost RM99 (£17.45/US$24.12/€20.31).
Meanwhile, The dual-tone Business Class duvet, which is selling at RM110 (£19.37/US$26.79/€22.56).
Finally, the Business Suite Pyjamas Set will cost RM119 (£20.96/US$28.99/€24.40), containing zip-up top, pants, eye mask, as well as socks and slippers thoughtfully packed in a reusable tote bag.
Also, it seems they’re selling inflight peanuts for RM15 (£2.64/US$3.65/€3.08).
These will be on sale on the Malaysia Airlines store – temptations.malaysiaairlines.com. The airline will offer delivery worldwide. It goes without saying, you can also earn MH Enrich miles if you collect them.
Group Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer of Malaysia Airlines Berhad, Lau Yin May, said:
“We are delighted to offer our exclusive Malaysia Airlines’ Business Suite and Business Class merchandises online in the pursuit of bringing the Malaysian Hospitality experience closer to our customers. Everyone from all walks of life who miss flying with us will now have a chance to re-create their flying experience with our best cabin merchandises at home. Rest assured that these items are all new and ready stocks. We hope that by making these signature items available, our customers can reminisce their happy memories of flying with us as we look forward to welcoming them onboard for their Fly Malaysia experience again soon.”
Monitising stock on the ground
With premium passengers rather thin on the ground at the moment, like Qantas and British Airways, this is going to help airlines move stock that is sitting in warehouses – and them having to send it for disposal/land-fill.
And it gives the airline a chance to recover the costs of purchasing the stock, whilst giving those who crave a little bit of aviation memorabilia in the house.
Will I get any of it?
I’ve got to admit, that blanket looks awfully tempting. As well as some peanuts. The highlight of any Malaysia Airlines flight.
