You're not looking for the right terms because I've seen KLM seats on ebay just recently.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/KLM-Royal-Dutc ... 2298117841
As of Dec 2018 I've flown 417,862 miles on 250 flights on 51 airplane types with 55 airlines traveling thru 97 airports in 43 countries. I've visited 59 countries. 2019 is looking like a pretty decent year for me.

I just did a search for "airlines seats" and there are plenty for sale.

I'd love to get one of the J seats but they're always sold as a pair, thus $1k+

I teach elementary/primary school.

I'd love a couple rows for my reading area. Especially the listing I saw that had tray tables. Kind of pricey though

I have seen all the sets on ebay- there really aren't any older seats except for a few TWA ones from the 80s- which i have my eye on.

I am looking more for AA/Pan Am sleeper seats of the 80s- particularly ones with sheepskin, but they are impossible to find..

I think it's a cool idea in theory to have airline seats for like a man cave or something, but then I think about the thousands, potentially millions of times that seat has been an unwilling fart receptacle and then I don't think it's such a good idea anymore. Lol.

I searched for airline seats on ebay.com and there are tons of options, but boy are you going to pay a pretty penny for them!

We purchased seats and beverage carts on both eBay and Craigslist.

Delta has a sale of surplus goods like seats and galley carts on the second Friday of every month at their museum in Atlanta.

Your message wasn't clear enough to indicate you were looking for something like Pan Am or TWA. To me, whose first language is not English, did not pick up on your vague point.

You are correct- I am sorry for the lack of initial clarification. I am looking for something older- primarily AA/Pan Am sleeper seat

I love that almost all TV shows or movie you see with airline interior is the iconic UA tequila sunrise pattern seats. Wonder where one can find those.

I have searched CL around the country- found a few pairs, but nothing too good- Still on the lookout for an AA/Pan Am sleeper with sheepskin

I just saw this- Thanks but I am looking for a lambswool/sheepskin seat from AA. These are near-impossible to find but I am still on the hunt.
