18 Crazy SkyMall Products You Can Still Buy Before The Company Shuts Down For Good
It's a sad day for air travelers. Our favorite in-flight magazine, SkyMall, has filed for bankruptcy. SkyMall has always been there for us, easily within reach in the seatback pocket in front of us, saving us from boredom and the chatty guy next to us on countless occasions. And now we'll get to our seats and ... it just won't be there. That means impulse shoppers will no longer be able to purchase super-weird products like wine glass holder necklaces or golf club beer spigots from 30,000 feet in the air — a long and time-honored tradition.On Thursday, SkyMall LLC, parent company Xhibit Corp., and other subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona. Xhibit Chief Financial Officer Scott Wiley wrote in a statement along with the filing:"Historically, the SkyMall catalog was the sole in-flight option for potential purchasers of products to review while traveling. With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog."Essentially, the combination of competition from e-commerce retailers and increased usage of electronic devices on airplanes spelled the demise of our beloved SkyMall. After efforts to secure additional funding failed, the company filed for bankruptcy. It feels natural to want to mourn the death of the catalog, but let's celebrate the life of SkyMall instead by looking at 18 of its craziest products you can still get before it's too late.
