And who the heck is buying it? I don’t know the answer to those questions but there’s a guy currently under arrest in Reunion who apparently knows the answer.
The 28-year-old photographer, based in Canada, would travel first class on Air France and other carriers and disembark with a stash of airline napkins, glasses, plates, blankets and anything else he thought he could sell online, according to French police.
OK, so I’ve taken a blanket before. And I’ve got a set of the cool airplane salt & pepper shakers from an airline or two. But even clearing out an entire plane of all the tableware it seems that it would be difficult to generate so much in sales as to net €10,000 in sales, even over a 3-year period as is alleged. That’s some serious eBay action.
