June Travel News: SkyMall

It was always a hoot—pewter Lord of the Rings chess sets, life-sized Yeti garden sculptures, girdles for men—and with merchandise like that, who could’ve predicted bankruptcy? But in January SkyMall went Chapter 11 and broke our hearts. Now, a mere four months later, it has risen from the ashes (you can thank the new owner, C&A Marketing). Our well-thumbed window into the world of bizarre travel pillows will be back in airline seat pockets by the end of the year.
