In-flight catalog SkyMall filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Thursday, the company said in a regulatory filing on Friday.
The company said its debtors intend to sell the SkyMall online retail business and most other assets. It also blamed competition from online retailers including Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, +1.33% and eBay Inc. EBAY, +0.01% and said increased use of electronic devices on planes have led fewer people to browse its in-flight catalog.
SkyMall isn’t completely dead, but it is running low on cash. If SkyMall indeed ceases to exist, let’s take a moment of silence to honor some of the best that SkyMall still has to offer.
