Skybus goes broke, but there’s an upside to business collapse

Posted By on Mon, Apr 14, 2008 at 5:34 AM

This may be the new symbol of incompetence, but it's worth something on eBay.
The recent death of Skybus, the Columbus discount airline, could be taken as a bad thing for those negative people who always see the glass as half-full. But there’s always an upside. A vintage Skybus t-shirt, still in the plastic wrapping, is now being offered for $499.99 on eBay. A safety-information card that’s supposedly from the last flight to Greensboro, North Carolina, is going for $10.49. And best of all, a combination package containing a t-shirt, in-flight magazine, luggage tags (“slightly used”) and a barf bag (“NEVER been used”), is selling for a mere $39. Consider this, National City employees, as you await your pink slips. Remember how executives were always gave you free golf-shirts during “team-building exercises?” That’s no longer worthless crap. That’s your retirement fund. – Lisa Rab
