    In-Flight Catalog SkyMall Files for Bankruptcy

    Parent Company Xhibit, Other Affiliates Seeking Bankruptcy-Court Supervised Sale Of Assets

    The company behind the in-flight catalog SkyMall filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Thursday, a victim of evolving rules and technology that now lets airline passengers keep their smartphones and tablets powered up during flight.

    SkyMall LLC, its parent company Xhibit Corp. , and several other affiliates are seeking a bankruptcy-court supervised sale of their assets, according to papers filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Phoenix.

    In court papers, acting Chief Executive Scott Wiley cited a “crowded, rapidly evolving and intensely competitive” retail environment as the reason for the quarterly publication’s recent nosedive.

    “With the increased use of electronic devices on planes, fewer people browsed the SkyMall in-flight catalog,” Mr. Wiley said.

    Even without my Kindle, IPhone and magazines, I never considered purchasing anything from Sky Mall.
