SkyMall magazine, the magazine for travelers to pick up on an airplane, has filed bankruptcy. With technology changing, most customers are buying items online or looking at them on their phones rather from magazines and catalogs.Delta ended its contract with SkyMall back in August, and Wiley said airlines found the magazine”unattractive.”The magazine has been around since 1990 and offers items like a Yeti garden statue, a Volkswagen Camper Tent (a tent shaped like a VW Bus) and an adult jumping ball. In 2013, SkyMall’s revenue was about US $33.7 million. In the first nine months of 2014, that number slipped to US $15.8 million. SkyMall may want to sell the magazine in March.And people read them too. The bankruptcy filing says SkyMall has US $10 million in assets.
