Headline could mean anything from the invention of low energy anti-gravity to airlines no longer putting a farking magazine in passenger seat back pockets.

What, is Frontier charging a fee for Skymall?

People actually but stuff from that "catalog"? I thought it was a wry satire on consumerism.

They all look like suburbanites who try to find happiness by buying crap to fill up their heavily mortgaged McMansions.

Likewise, your days of finger-banging Miss Mary Jane Rottencrotch through her purty pink panties are OVER!

So they clearly know their audience.

My favorite quote from SkyMall:

"The latest in ancient technology!"

I always read the SkyMall catalogs when I fly.

And I'm impressed that they still carry the shelves that will hold over 2000 CDs.

/big demand for that, I'm sure

The meetings take on a new urgency these days, as a new era of passengers packing smartphones and tablets means the catalog has lost its captive audience. SkyMall lost $3.2 million in May through September of 2013, the only period reported in detail by its new parent company, Xhibit Corp., an Arizona marketing firm.

YO DAWG WE HERD YOU LIKE PLANES SO WE'RE SELLING YOU A TOY PLANE ON A PLANE SO YOU CAN FLY WHEN YOU FLY

/unless the TSA abscond with it, calling it a dangerous weapon...

I want those giant feet plant containers for my garden.

My neighbor would HATE it and that is worth the price.

Around the time Leo Laporte stopped ordering crap from them to review on "The Giz Wiz". Guess he was keeping them in business.

Because airliners are now restricted to "fly zones" below 30,000 feet or above 40,000 feet?
(Next time, try the train..wait, that means Amtrak....leave the driving to us...no, that's Greyhound...
how about just staying home?)
