I keep the safety card from the planes. My friends know that if they fly an airline other than AC or UA, they should take the card for me. I have quite the collection! As for the earphones, I spent the 300 on the Bose headphones. Best money I ever spent!

I ussually keep the boarding pass, sometimes the inflight magazine, and i know it sounds crazy but i am known to after the meal quietly put the fork on my pocket and maybe some other things on the tray worth keeping...

Currently I'm trying to get my hands on an airline life jacket. Won;t be flying anytime soon, so I can't "borrow" one myself. LOL I usually keep all paper handouts as well as spoons. All my friends know that when they fly, they are to return with the spoon. I have both plastic and metal spoons and am looking for new ones. If you'd like to contribute to my cause, feel free to contact me.

I am such a pack-rat with various items from flights I have been on. I always take the safety cards and inflight magazines. I'll take napkins that have the airline logo and/or route map on them. I have salt & pepper shakers, moist towlettes, bars of soap, silverwear, etc. My collection got so out-of-hand that now I will only take things that are from a random airline or type of plane. When I was traveling through Australia in 1991, I took safety cards from every airline I went on. When I checked my carry-on through security, they singled my bag out to search. The security guy saw the safety cards and started yelling at me and took them from me. I was only 12 at the time and he scared the hell out of me. Then my Dad got in a fight with the security guy for yelling at me. So much drama for a piece of airline memorobilia. I ended up getting them confiscated, and I'll never be able to replace them which is too bad. But it's probably good, as my collection is too big as it is. My latest: a saftey card from an AW 737-300 I got last month.

I always keep the ticket stub and cover, and if I have checked baggage I will keep the baggage tags. Also, isn't it against federal law to take the safety cards, but o well, its just fun and I'm sure they don't really care.

I keep most everything that I can, from cups to tickets. My favorite are blankets, bought a BA off of Ebay, took two from AA, one from AC and one from UAL. Most of the time I usually keep the barf bags too... you never know when they may come in handy Safety cards are tempting, but I always have this fear of me taking the safety card and something happening on the plane.

Back when I used to fly, I would always save something, usually the tickets or at least the stubs. If I happened to find any other trinkets that interested me, I would occasionally snag them. Among my collection:
A still sealed pair of headphones with the old USAir logo embossed on it
A sealed set of real metal Continental "silverware" (wonder if these would be worth anything now?)
A couple of water bottles fron National that had cool color labels of the logo and a picture of the plane. Looked really sharp if held up to a bright light
Assorted America West (burgundy logo) items including a bag of pretzels, peanuts, and a soap bar. I wonder of the snacks, being 1995 vintage, are still edible?

Recently on a Qantas flight in a 2 class 747-300 from Denpasar to Sydney I found an airline safety card for a Amrican Airlines 757 in a business class seat pocket. What I found strange is that these aircraft should never cross paths at the same airport so this must have been one well travelled saftey card that was a long way from home.

I keep my ticket jacket/boarding pass along with the headphones. One time I took a blanket from UA-I still keep it on my bed! I should've taken the in-flight magazine though. I also saved a bag tag that said 'Lost Luggage' on it from United.
Besides this, I just take alot of pictures of the a/c and cabin.
