Souvenir Sunday at the Boeing Store

EVA AIR DELIVERY

It’s always fun to go to Everett, Wash. for a delivery ceremony for a new airplane and last week there was an especially festive event for EVA Air to celebrate delivery of the airline’s 16th and 17th Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

These two planes are the first to sport the new Panasonic eX3 in-flight entertainment system and feature a variety of seat, service and amenity upgrades.

Going to a delivery ceremony in Everett also offers the opportunity to shop at the Boeing Store and stock up on airplane-shaped paperclips and tins of 787 & 777 mints.

BOEING SOUVENIRS

Want some of these?

You can, of course, go the Boeing Store and get some there, or you can send me a photo and some descriptive information about a fun, inexpensive and locally-themed souvenir you’ve found at an airport or aviation center.

If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, I’ll send you a ‘reward’ from my stash of recently scored souvenirs from the Boeing Store.

Souvenir Sunday at Lincoln Airport

Arrow Sport on display at Lincoln Airport

Greetings from Nebraska’s Lincoln Airport, where this Arrow Sport – one of only six known to be in existence – hangs from the baggage claim ceiling.

The bag claim area of this small airport is also where I found this tractor from the collection of the Larsen Tractor Test & Power Museum on the University of Nebraska campus.

There’s only one shop at Lincoln Airport, but I was delighted to find plenty of these corny souvenirs on the shelves:

Do you shop for souvenirs when you’re stuck at the airport? If you spot something that’s inexpensive, locally-themed and a bit offbeat, please snap a photo and send it along to us here at StuckatTheAirport.com.

If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, you’ll receive a fun travel souvenir.

Souvenir Sunday at 08 Left

It’s Souvenir Sunday, a day to take a look at some of the fun things you can buy at airports.

This week’s treats aren’t for sale at any particular airport (yet..) but can be found online at the website of 08 Left, which has a line of travel, airport and air traffic control-related designs that they can put on everything from coasters (below) and t-shirts to clocks, prints and shower curtains.

“08 Left happens to be a runway in Paris where our family visited a few years ago and we loved it! So we went with it,” says Ryan Miller, who runs the site from Spokane, WA with his wife Heidi. “It’s been a blast to talk to all kinds of pilots, air traffic controllers and travelers about airports, cities, and art that might help them remember and represent where they’ve been,” said Miller.

Here are some more images from their line:

Souvenir Sunday at SFO airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – a day to take a look at some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can pick up when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s treats come from the Marin-county-based McEvoy Ranch pop-up shop in the recently re-opened Boarding area E (T3E), which serves United Airlines flights in Terminal 3 at San Francisco International Airport.

The shop, which has a lease for just one year, is selling its locally sourced olive oils and body care products.

Testing – and buying – their lotions was tempting; especially with the free tube-with-purchase offer. But I settled on one of the shop’s best-selling items: the $7 lip balm made with California certified extra virgin olive oil, vitamin E, peppermint essential oil, beeswax and other organic ingredients.

Do you spend time in the shops when you’re stuck at the airport? If you find a locally-themed item that’s fun, inexpensive and perhaps a bit offbeat, please snap a photo and send it along to StuckatTheAirport.com.

If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, I’ll send you a special souvenir from my travels.

Souvenir Sunday at Hong Kong Int’l Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – a day to take a look at some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can find when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s treats come from the Hong Kong International Airport.

Colorful bags of candy are everywhere –

As are gift boxes of cakes and cookies of all kinds –

All things Mickey – and Minnie – Mouse – seem quite popular –

But I wanted to buy pretty much everything at the airport branch of the Designgallery shop, stocked with creative and innovative Hong Kong-made products.
