    I was surprised to see the fake rock on the list. Those are commonly used around here to protect and hide wellheads.

    Probably won't be missed, but still surprising. I thought they did well with their captive audience.

    iPads and internet on the flight probably changed that.

    To be perfectly honest, even before the advent of the digital revolution, I do not recall anyone ever actually buying anything on the flight.

    Duty free items maybe (perfumes, chocolates, liquor), but never anything SkyMall.

    I'm surprised they lasted this long.
