Glamour in Flight

Cathay Pacific Airways is taking duty-free shopping to new heights with its latest luxury offering. Alongside the standard duty-free premium chocolates, alcohol, and makeup is a vintage glamour travel collection, offered exclusively through Cathay Pacific’s new Beyond Duty-Free Program. The airline now offers vintage Louis Vuitton trunks, Hermés travel clocks, and a dozen other high-end collectibles aboard their flights, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $15,000. A Rolex Explorer II? one of actor Steve McQueen’s favorite models ?was recently sold aboard a Cathay Pacific flight for $25,000. The limited number of rotating treasures, which are sourced from antiques dealers in France, are available only to guests onboard Cathay Pacific flights. (www.cathaypacific.com)
