Anti-microbial tray liner?

So, my tray table on US Air has this hideous ad. Some questions:

1. Was my flight cheaper because of this?
2. Who sells this for them – the in flight magazine?
3. What is an anti-microbial tray liner? It was the most interesting part of the ad, but no mention of any details.
4. Why remind me of all the germs floating around this super-dry and now super-infected air?
5. Who thought this was a good idea?

Sincerely,

Annoyed in 21A

    They're assuming you already had a cold and decided to fly anyway. It's not about Zicam selling product, its about US Air making you feel ashamed for getting on their plane with the sniffles. Zicam just got free advertising out of it.

    It's an odd placement…so far from the point of sale, and so annoying. It was the utter surprise and intrusion of it that struck me. It could have at least be interesting to read. A funny story about someone getting a cold. Interesting facts about air travel. Something. Anything but an ad. No call to action. No link elsewhere.

    You know, if it would've been on a flight with wifi and they also had something interesting/entertaining (for free) on the wifi, then I would've looked at it.

    All in all. A waste. A missed opportunity. And an annoying intrusion.
