I wonder if / when the airlines will partner with somebody to allow passengers to gamble while flying?

I envision screens embedded in the rear of the seat facing you, with touch-activated betting options.

Sure, the laws would have to change for it to be permitted on domestic flights, but couldn't it be implemented immediately for international / intercontinental flights, over international waters?

Ah, casinos in the sky:that'll have 'em dancing bare ass naked in the aisles.

I remember reading, many years ago, that the next generation of jumbo jets would have gambling aboard. The artist rendition was the upper leven was standard seating and lower level had a casino with regular table games.

As much as a degenerate as I am, I just can't see the need or the profitability of such an arrangement.

Put me on a 13 hour flight to Australia, with a craps table on board, and I would be in heaven. Now THAT would be a way to travel.

Pick one. Humans are bald, they all look the same naked. Every
bird species looks different, and interesting. Not humans.
