If you want a unique piece of furniture for your home or office, here’s your chance to own your very own airline seat. Kedai Kaki Lelong, a local auction house is now offering interesting airline parts which include economy and business class seats, interior components, and even a jet engine from a Boeing 747.
According to the listing, the economy and business class seats are selling from RM350 while stocks last. You can view the seats at their Puchong outlet.
Based on the photos, some of the colourful seats look similar to the ones previously used by Malaysia Airlines as well as the now-defunct Rayani Air. Obviously, these are used seats but it can be an interesting collector’s item if you’re keen on restoring them.
The Kaki Lelong site also features other interesting components like an exterior cover for a General Electric jet engine and a Boeing 747 interior panel. The biggest aircraft part for sale is a 747 jet engine but there’s no pricing or description that it still works. From the looks of it, the seller might have more aircraft parts available and you can contact them via WhatsApp.
These used parts are typically sourced from retired planes after decades of service. We are guessing some parts might come from the abandoned 747s which were left uncollected for years at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
For those who are looking for more practical collectibles, Aviation Tag is selling “aircraft skins” made from old aircraft. Previously, they sold tags made from the very first Airbus A380 for EUR 28 (about RM130) each. In case you missed it, Malaysia Airlines have partnered with TheSelina to introduce a series of sustainable handbags that uses leather from their business class seats, belts and buckles, tablecloths, and even the cabin crew’s kebaya uniform. The last time we checked, all bags were sold out.
