With the auction finishing up in the early hours of this morning (US time), the final bid was for NZ$710 ($485). We think that's a bargain, although we probably wouldn't have bid on it ourselves. Would you be willing to pay for a piece of celeb travel history? Let us know in the comments!
Who Wants To Buy Paris Hilton's Boarding Pass?
Picture this: You sit down in your Air Pacific business class seat on your flight from New Zealand to Fiji. You open up your in-flight magazine and a boarding pass falls out. But not just any boarding pass: this one belonged to Paris Hilton, who was sitting in your very seat not too long ago.
This is exactly what happened for a Kiwi named Phil, who took home the unexpected bookmark, verified that it was legitimate, and then put it up for auction on New Zealand auction site Trade Me, with the description "This is a bit weird, but someone may want it". Much to his surprisebeing self-confessed ignorant about quite how famous Paris Hilton isthe boarding pass started getting a heap of bids, at which point Phil decided to donate the proceeds of the sale to charity.
