* Important – Please Read Carefully Before Making Purchase
Our aviation luggage tags are made from skins of plane fuselage, not stamped metal. Each luggage tag is unique - color, thickness, wear and tear may differ from one piece to another piece. We did our best to craft and clean each tag by hand carefully, however, some scratches on the surface of the tag are inevitable due to age of those airplanes. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. Rather, they are the history and story of the airplane and this Aviator’s Story will continue as a luggage tag. Keep away from children's reach. Be cautious that the edge of this product may be sharp and may cause wound on skin. Keep out of mouth.

Fantastic customer service - fabulous tags!

I can't fault this company with anything! They were thoughtful enough to refund me the extra shipping after I ordered another tag separately before the order was dispatched. I only knew when I checked my email inbox! Wow!
Standard shipping time was actually very quick from HK to the UK. My goodness, stunning Allegiant Air 757 tags!! The fact she flew originally with Britannia Airways/Thomsonfly/Thomson as G-BYAI, and briefly leased to Jet2 as G-LSAL before departure across 'the pond' certainly increases the appeal of them to me!! Very well done Aviator Story.👏👍 Orange/white ordered!

CX has always been one of my favourite airline, it's pity to see their last 747 retired.
It so happened I was at the airport when B-HUJ made her last flight, and managed to capture a glimsp of the Queen of the Skies taking off.

Superb

This is an absolutely beautiful tag. Unlike other tag companies that use the static 3D view of the aircraft, this brand used drawing of actual flying aircraft. Very interesting!
