Winner Keri Butler with her winnings!

The contest (now over):
Have you ever been on a plane, flipping through one of those in-flight catalogs, and seen an item that’s made you laugh, or point out to your seatmate, or just shake your head? Something like, say:

  • A remote-controlled towel
  • A hat that can remember your name
  • Dog ice skates
  • Edible bookmarks
  • A TV powered by bacon grease

None of those items are real, but in the air—based on what else is out there—they really could be. In our “Only In The Air” contest with Gogo, we’re asking for the craziest, most ridiculous, coolest, most ingenious, most impractical, or just most memorable product you’ve ever seen in an in-flight catalog. If it made you think, “Only In The Air,” we want to hear about it.

From the pool of readers who share their favorites, one lucky winner will be picked to win a Macbook Air, an iPad and an Apple TV!

Here’s how to enter:

Comments

  1. My ‘only in the Air’ gadget is the doggie bed that automatically warms up when the doggie enters.

  2. My husband bought a small Yeti statue (which oddly has great abs) and hid it in the trees in our backyard as a joke for our 3 boys. It’s memorable for everyone that spots it in our yard!

  3. I saw the No!No! for the first time in an inflight mag and I thought it sounded way too good to be true, and totally ridiculous. Now I seem to see it on TV every week. Le sigh.

  4. Ryan Williams says:

    The most ridiculous thing I have seen in the skymall catalog is the lawn yeti that stands about 5 feet tall.

  5. Christine P. says:

    Crazy, I don’t know- ingenious is more like it. The brownie pan that gives them all edges from the SkyMall catalog. :-)

  6. Keeping the season in mind – I once saw a Christmas tree all decorated in Judaica. SO Fantastic ;)

  7. christina kang says:

    i recently saw a singing toothbrush in sky mall! who doesn’t want to listen to justin beiber or gangnam style while brushing their teeth??

    Macbook Air

  9. Pet Crate End tables.

  10. There is a $360 self-cleaning litter box that looks like a scale-to-size Death Star. http://www.skymall.com/litter-robots/GAPC100.html
    Only in the air…

  11. Michelle Proper says:

    I think the funniest thing I ever saw in an In Flight catalog on a plane was a toilet paper roll heater! It was funny because I had no idea that was an issue! Hahaha

  12. OK, as a certified Apple fanboy, the only item I lack is a MACBOOK AIR. GIMME SUM DAT!! Oh–and a flying Gogo dawg, too. I want one!! HAHAAHAA

  13. I love the kitty cat potty training kit!

  14. Alexandra says:

    Only in the Air Product – An outdoor garden thing that appears to look like a dead man crawling out of the earth. Who buys that? No not just Halloween. This is an all year offered item.

  15. A Stabilizing Monopod for camera. Pretty slick!

  16. A Gogo wireless router bowtie – take your signal with you wherever your dapper attire will take you

  17. Oh this made me laugh. Just this morning a few co-workers and I were laughing about the Beverage Bra! (I *may* or may not want one)!

  18. “Juicy Crittoure Pawfum,” a perfume for your pet, seems pretty outrageous to me. ;)

  19. The weirdest was definitely Protein Ketchup!

  20. Weirdest thing I saw – a doggy water bed! Gotta love those onboard magazine malls.

  21. The most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in an in-flight catalog was a device to “fix” golfer’s tan. Basically it was a tanning booth for your feet!

  22. Thank you for the opportunity to win! You always have the best giveaways! Plus your articles are always interesting and informative!!

  23. Inflatable “personal suite” to transform a row of airline seats into an isolated oasis free from crying babies and close-contact coughs..

  24. Battery powered Plastic ice cream cone that spins the ice cream for you so you don’t have to move your tongue or hand.

  25. Combined iPad pedestal stand & toilet paper roll holder

  26. The last time I flew, there was an outdoor theatre offered, I cannot remember the cost, but it was large. The screen was huge and it raised out of the ground, and ipads were included in the price along with the sound system. This was far from my reach!!!! Probably Leo Laporte could afford it, or at least The Donald.

  27. Jeannie Brust says:

    Nose hair clipper!

  28. My “Only In The Air” product is a WINBOT Window Cleaning Robot ($399). How cool that would be !!

  29. Lauren Hanson says:

    The bacon pillow and the mounted squirrel head are definitely two “Only in the air” products I have seen recently!

  30. Darleene Powells says:

    SkyMall’s NFL Forest Face, here: http://www.skymall.com/nfl-forest-face/EVE103.html?start=48&catid=5441#start=48&sz=47. Only for the truly nutty NFL fan and something you’d only see in the air. I mean, wow.

  31. I still get nervous about the electric ice scrapper. Connecting a wire to electrical current while standing in water does not seem like a good idea to me…

  32. a few years ago, I saw an ad for a light-up deer with a red chest that someone could attach to the back of a truck or trailer.

  33. A Bacon Throw Cover and Food Pillows. WOW.

  34. thank you for the chance…just so you know the instagram follow for gogo is not working but I do follow danirenee1982 :)

  35. would be perfect for my cats, but then Snuggles would just figure out to follow Star all the time and still steal her food.

  38. Really excited about this competition, fantastic products and a really exciting forward thinking company in Gogo too.

  39. I remember seeing a pillow that you sleep on a flight – leaning forward. One guy actually reviewed it. Google “SkyRest Travel Pillow Actual Review” and read for yourself.

  40. A hat with a bottle and straw attached

  41. My favorite “Only In the Air” product would have to be a “Pencil Straw”. It’s a pencil on one end and a straw on the other. Why? Because everyone gets thirsty while doing homework, and no one wants to pick up the glass of water to drink.

  42. What if there was a way to electronically remove warts in the privacy of your own home? Well maybe you can with the Electronic Wart Remover that’s advertised on page 114 of the December 2013 US Airways magazine!

  43. The humuga lips dog toy is weird,impractical, and a little creepy.

  48. I once saw a life size statue of Sasquatch for sale.

  49. Chris Jarjoura says:

    A talking dog collar, that the dog owner controls. So, it doesn’t even help if the dog is lost. You just use it to “surprise” your guests when the dog talks, when you push the button.

  50. Chocolate fountain.

  51. Lighted dog lease powered by pulling by your dog

  52. I think the first time I ever saw a “porch potty” for dogs in one of those “airline shopping magazines”, I thought, “Seriously??”. Only in the air!!!

  53. Anonymous says:

    Dog leash

  54. I once saw iPhone cuff links in the Skymall. They were mini little iPhones designed with apps and everything the size of cufflinks. Only in the air!

  55. I’ve never been on a plane but if I had to dream something up it would be the air freshner/nausea bag.

  56. It has got to be the “tree face” you buy to place on a tree in your backyard so it can look like it has eyes, nose, and a mouth… Genius! Don’t know how I ever lived without it! I now see my life was incomplete before learning about it… #SweetIgnorance

  57. A personal massager to fit in your purse that looks like a tube of lipstick. REALLY, you can’t wait until you get there?? I will never ever look at lipstick the same. “ONLY IN THE AIR”

  58. Heather Ratliff says:

    I saw a personalizable Viewmaster. That was pretty cool!

  59. I always liked the pillow with holes for your head and hands that blacks out light – so you can sleep in Economy on those long-haul flights!

  60. The portable personal bubble that envelopes your head to serve as a gas mask.

  61. D. Vargas says:

    Nose-massaging eyeglasses.

  62. Its “only in the air” that i never in the air. I love travel by ship and car. I wish i can take of from ship to turn around the world someday.

  63. Touchless Sensor Toilet Seats: http://t.co/aKXTcDrlQ2 pretty much takes it…

  64. Boom — BuzzFeed put together 35 of them for me: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/the-35-most-ridiculous-skymall-items

  65. I saw a hideous lamp which looked like a women posing and it had a lampshade for the head.

  66. Marc Mahacek says:

  76. Mermaid Swim Fins

  77. marshmallow ear plugs ;X

  78. Brent Ekins says:

    A foot warmer for the in-flight that you could use to keep warm while shedding your shoes. Just the thing for a long flight in the winter

  79. The craziest thing I’ve seen in an in-flight magazine was a physical CD for AT&T dial-up internet. On the CD packaging it said, “CD CANNOT BE USED AS FLOTATION DEVICE.” Ridiculous that they either felt the need or were required to!

  80. Only in the air entry would have to be from my flight earlier this evening where I saw a ‘Train your cat how to go to the bathroom in a human toilet.’

  81. gina cooper says:

  124. A Wrought Iron Christmas Tree (http://www.skymall.com/wrought-iron-tree/67386.html?catid=102195449#start=1). I guess it can also double as a hat and coat rack in the off-season. :)

  149. The huge cube like pillows. You are suppose to be able to sit it on the tray and lay your head, shoulders/upper body on it. Good luck with the worn, rickety, not so sturdy trays.

(the one that in their minds, when you fall that hard/ far/fast, surely it should have dropped.)

To tell you the truth, I’ve never been on a plane or let alone off this island (OAHU) but if ever there comes a time for me to fly, there should be a product where at the back of the headrest of the passenger in front of me, there should be a built-in beauty salon to make me all dolled up so when I land in Vegas, I’m all pretty for when I meet my granddaughter for the very first time…”Only in the Air” glamour!! *;)

  173. I think perhaps my two favorites have been the unicorn horn for your pet cat, and the plastic container of air.

I literally laughed out loud and couldn’t stop, laughing so hard tears were coming from my eyes. If I knew I would not have gotten carted off by security, I would have gotten some straps and made my own seat for my kids with their little chairs from home. That was the best laugh!

  202. Brandon Bethea says:

    My “Only in the Air” entry – I saw the “NFL Forest Face” once where you decorate your favorite tree with eyes/nose/lips made of resin and a cap from your favorite team. I think if I want someone to know I’m a fan of a certain team, a baseball cap works just fine!

  211. A ceramic Smoking Baby – you put a little cigarette in its mouth (they are supplied in the package I’m relieved to say) and the stupid thing “smokes” them.

  266. The best item I ever saw in a SkyMall magazine was a hiccup stick! Apparently, you place this plastic stick between your teeth and then drink a glass of water. Supposed to cure them in minutes ;) Thought it was definitely strange!

  280. Learn to play piano dvds.

  281. It is called the NFL Forest Face, and is essentially the pieces of a face (think Mr. Potato Head) and a ball cap that you affix to a tree to show your team allegiance. Really?
    I just wonder how the tree feels (humiliated, I’m guessing), and what if you outfit it with the Green Bay Packers getup, and it is a Patriots fan? .. or does not care for football, but enjoys ball room dancing?!
    The tree defiling must end!

  287. Michele Cupp says:

    I remember a necklace that was a wine glass holder. Not practical, nor would anyone ever wear that!

    The “Only In Air Product” I saw that was odd to me was an Vivitar digital camera and Binocular combo.

  318. “Only in the Air” Product: The Zero-Gravity Tri-Mode Personal Video Boom Headmount.

    Your iPhone or Android smartphone easily mounts into this light as a feather, adjustable head mounted boom. The telescoping and bendable boom offers a myriad of positions for taking still pictures or shooting video of yourself, others, or both!

    Want to talk on the phone? Just use the speakerphone and don’t bother taking the phone out of the mount – what could be more convenient?

    Constructed of space-age, top-secret materials, this head mounted camera/phone boom is both sturdy and stylish. So good looking, you might be tempted to wear it even without the phone mounted on it! But that won’t happen because this ingenious invention offers so many conveniences:

    Mode 1 – Ready/Aim/Fire!
    Tired of missing the perfect photo-opportunity while fumbling in your pockets for your for your smartphone? Conveniently suspended at eye-level, you will never miss another shot. Hitting the power button and triggering the shutter was never easier with the convenience of one or two handed operation.

    Mode 2 – 100% Selfie-Ready
    Does your arm tire after extended sessions of taking those hilarious selfies you love to send to all your friends and post publicly on social media? The zero gravity support let you save all your energy for clicking the shutter as opposed to aiming holding the camera aloft. Plus, once positioned to capture the perfect angle to highlight your stunning facial features, the strong boom will keep the camera in position until you choose to try your other profile!

    Mode 3 – Split-Screen/Constant Video
    Have an unlimited data plan? forget about the tiresome chore of remembering what you did on your trip, simply set your phone to a split screen view using both the front and back cameras to stream a continuous video of your trip from beginning to end. Just imagine how your friends (and stalkers) will enjoy experiencing your vacation in real time – seeing not only what you are seeing, but also how you are reacting – or viewing it over and over for years to come as they live vicariously through you and your awesome life!

    A product so revolutionary, you may never want to carry your phone in your hand or clothing again!

    Adjustable to hat sizes 6 3/4 to 8.

    Price: $199.50. Save $50 when ordering three or more.

  323. jari holland buck says:

    I saw a dog or cat you attach to your key chain that barks or meows when you make a certain noise (don’t remember what noise).

  324. Chris Bradford says:

    The most ridiculous thing I’ve seen is the SkyRest travel pillow that blows up big enough to wrap your arms around. If I ever see anyone actually break this out on a plane, I’ll eat my hat.

  325. You can’t beat the Ostrich Travel Pillow.

  341. Just random things that are supposed to fit over any of your limbs or joints while in-flight.

  342. I literally laughed out loud when I saw this one in the in-flight magazine: “Beer Pager – When you press the button, the beer holder burps to alert you of the drink’s whereabouts.”
    Believe me, I know a couple of guys who would gladly order that thing!

  343. I always enjoyed the self-cleaning litter box. Perfect for vacations, to be honest, but a bit over the top in reality!

  344. So many to choose from… neck pillows for when you sleep sitting on the plane. I bet they’re comfortable, but then they require most of your carry-on space. But oh, a hundreds of dollars inflatable movie screen! Maybe that was the one that was most fun for me. I’m not sure about the $600+ suitcase that heats up to kill bed bugs… it might be a good idea but can luggage really heat to close to 200 degrees?

  345. OK, I’m so embarrassed to say this because my ex-wife bought me: The Torso Toner from the Sky Mall magazine after I started to gain weight. The sad fact is I was laughing at this in the Sky Mall magazine on our way to Maui and I wanted to share it with my wife but she was sleeping and I forgot to show her. The Torso Toner showed up two weeks after we got back from Maui. Yes it fit, Yes, it worked until I kept gaining weight and I couldn’t breathe anymore.

  346. I got a kick out of the beverage bra… mine would be filled with coffee since I MUST. HAVE. CAFFEINE. loll ;D

  351. Kami Dumis says:

  352. I have dogs that can’t stand the cold so the doggie bed that warms up is perfect for me

  353. Rebecca Reinwalt says:

  359. SkyMall has always been interesting to me in its offering of great DVD box sets like Cagney & Lacey, McMillan & Wife, Columbo, etc. The strangest thing I’ve seen though is these hideous vinyl football hats. Not sure what man would respectably wear them, even in jest.

  363. Serrena Stallmo says:

    It’s gotta be the Subservient Dragon Table. It’s a 3 foot tall dragon, holding a glass table that you can serve your guests from. Actually, the dragon serves your guests, ergo the “subservient” dragon.

  364. A camera lens mug is the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen.

  365. There are so many but the ones that stand out are the remote R2D2, the solar cube and the mounted squirrel head. only in the air!

  382. The “Beard Hat” on Sky Mall has to be the weirdest thing out thee right now.

  383. An outdoor heated cat shelter! Whoa!!!

  384. singing toothbrush with Justin Beiber

  385. “Looq Remote Shutter” for taking better shameless selfies with your smart phone…

  386. The Street Strider, which then was featured on Modern Family. It wasn’t that the product was super crazy…the crazy part was that my first thought was “I wonder if anyone has ridden that across the country, and if not, I could be the first!”

  387. Singing toothbrushes!

  388. I love the beard hat…makes me smile..would be fun to give to a grandma to wear!

  389. Shreddies…. flatulence filtering underwear…..

  390. The Heinie-Sniffin Beer Dog Toy made me laugh and shake my head

  391. A beer pager.. which begs the question if you need a pager to find your misplaced beer, perhaps you’ve had enough? Oh, SkyMall. :)

  392. Definitely the yard yeti. My neighbor has one…..ugh

  393. My Only in the Air product would absolutely have to be a golf club with a built-in flask for storing alcohol. Full of win!

  401. The kitty litter pan trainer for over the toilet.

  402. I found this XtremeCooler on my United flight home two days ago for my only in the air submission. At first seems ridiculous but would be awesome for an Airshow or day at the beach to easily move your cooler with beverages and food. This video makes me want one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDwS_XuEopk.

  403. Carolyn Barnett says:

    An elephant leg table

  404. Only in the air…I can’t believe the Sky Mall catalog is still in existence.
