‘SkyMall’ Files for Bankruptcy, Air Travel Gets Less Interesting

SkyMall

Refined gentleman travelers throughout the world are familiar with SkyMall, the catalog found on airplanes and filled with expensive products that even the wealthiest readers might consider decadent and outrageous. But it was very fun to read no matter how empty your bank account might have been, which is why it’s sad news that SkyMall‘s parent company Xhibit Corp. has filed for bankruptcy.

Unfortunately, this news doesn’t bode well for the future of SkyMall, although I suppose it’s possible that some other company could pick up the brand and continue distributing the catalogs to airplanes. Which is bad news for anyone who’d grown accustomed to being able to order an electronic champagne chiller while traveling and having it arrive home at the same time they did.

If you’re hoping to grab some of those one-of-a-kind SkyMall products while you can, and you don’t have any air travel on the agenda any time soon, you can head over to the SkyMall website here, which as of this writing appears to be running like normal. But don’t take it for granted, like so many air travelers over the years have made the mistake of doing.
