While Texas hold them poker has become a revenue-generating forum for Delta Airlines, the games have only been permitted on flights with in the US borders. In the case of the new gambling Airlines the games will be played on flights that originate as well as end outside of the United States. This is an observance of the United States Prohibition of foreign gambling operators offering US citizens online gaming opportunities.
The United States Department of Transportation invested time and finances into a study regarding the potential revenue offered by in-flight gambling. This study revealed that a US based airlines could potentially add an additional $300 million to their annual revenue base. To do this they would use the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 as their protection. This would facilitate the ability to offer in-flight gambling to anybody on their Airlines. However the US would have to open the ability to offer online gaming through the airlines on international flights. This confirms the advantages Singapore Airlines, British airlines, Virgin, and Cathay Pacific will appreciate as they begin to introduce in-flight gambling and poker opportunities.
