    I came across this article in the Australian Business Traveller:

    The top 5 ways to waste your money at the Qantas Shop
    On top of its day-to-day operations as Australia's flag-carrier airline, Qantas also runs an online shop selling an assortment of travel goods, accessories and even memorabilia

    That's nothing compared to a certain person I know that (used to) have walls painted in VH-OEJ's paint scheme and (still) has Dreamtime seats as his lounge room chairs (complete with the whole tray and cutlery/crockery setup from a QF flight so you can eat plane meals at your seat).
