Ever wanted the convenience of an airplane drink cart without the painful smack to the elbow as it passes by? Qantas Airlines lists them for sale on their website. They even come pre-stocked.

For just over $1,000 U.S. dollars, a full bar cart comes with mini bottles of champagne, white and red wine, snacks like biscuits, cookies and almonds, as well as first class amenities like blankets and four sets of pajamas.

Qantas also offers a half bar cart.

The carts come from the airline’s 747 planes that are being retired. As such, the carts are a little banged up from hundreds of trips up and down those narrow aisles.

The carts were listed for sale Wednesday, and within hours, the full carts and half carts were sold out.

While that is really quick, it’s not as quick as Qantas sold tickets to a seven-hour flight to nowhere; a sightseeing flight around Australia. Those were snapped up in just minutes.
