Customers can use the MyBespoke online tool to upload any original design, artwork or photo onto the refrigerator panel doors or use a pre-created generative art collection of 100 designs inspired by nature and the elements. Customers can also personalise one or both French doors with separate images or a single image across both.

The abstract designs look promising, but the image of a cat seems downright silly.

Shopping Down

Finnair will stop selling Marimekko amenity kits and other popular Finnish products on board its flights by the end of February. This move comes as part of a growing trend among airlines, including Qantas, United Airlines, and KLM, to end the once-popular inflight service due to the decline in demand for duty-free items.

The, ‘once-popular,’ is the key phrase there. This bureau often wondered why they were popular in the first place, but it’s demise is now becoming the prevailing trend for airlines moving further away from the golden age of air travel.

Improved airport retail options and the greater availability of goods online have also impacted the appeal of inflight sales. The airline will offer a 40% closing-down sale until the end of the service. Inflight sales will end on February 28, although passengers can still pre-order goods until April 18. Finnair will continue to sell food and beverages on board.
