Sad news, frequent fliers: SkyMall may be going the way of free checked luggage and in-flight meals. The parent company of the seat-back catalog that sells toilet-shaped pet water bowls, hair-growing machines, and other totally necessary consumer products filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Thursday, according to the Wall Street Journal. “With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog,” said acting Chief Executive Scott Wiley in court papers.
The company will go to auction on or about March 24, and it will attempt to “sustain their scaled-down business operations" for the time being. So while you can, check out our favorite (read: most hilarious) products featured in Skymall.com's Health & Beauty section.
