One Very Good Reason Not to Steal Qantas' Cups

Airline memorabilia collectors, beware! There's no need to longingly look at the china on your meal tray when flying, now that Qantas sells everything you need to complete your own premium class set-up at home.

Probably in an effort to curb the "5-finger discount," the Red Roo has begun selling their Marc Newson-designed tableware that is not only stylish, but quite practical on land as well. The bright white, modern bone china pieces would make a nice addition to any set table, not to mention their potential to start travel conversations over dinner.

If you want to have look for yourself, head over to the Qantas Shop to browse the selection. Ensure you prepare yourself for some sticker shock, because this stuff doesn't come cheap; after all it is designer. Just remember, purchasing is WAY better than stealing it, not to mention legal.

No word if the airline will think about selling its highly coveted flatware from the same designer. Since the introduction of the upgraded cutlery, replacing just the pinched teaspoons has cost the airline around $50,000. Maybe Qantas will take a page from Virgin Atlantic and emboss the items which routinely go missing with "Pinched From Qantas."

It's a trophy

I'm not going to lie "Pinched From Qantas" makes it even more enticing to sample them...
