Casinos to be introduced for long haul flights?

An old idea is back on tracks, for casinos on long distance flights. Currently there is no airline or any developer able to build this project.
Two French designers believe that this plan can be now implemented. They have an idea to create small room in the airplanes where casino games will be place along with a full liquor bar, in-flight movies and all these will be offered while the passengers will be seating in spacious seats.  Frederique Houssard, the founder of Designescence said: “We’re trying to bring back the glamour of the 50′s and 60′s a little bit,the kind you see in the James Bond movies.” Houssard and his partner, AirJet Designs’ Jean-Pierre Alfano, believe that this project can really implemented. Despite the fact that there is no formal agreement with any airline they believe that soon this project can be a success. Alfano said: “When you’re on a 14-hour flight, even when you’re in business class, all you can really do is eat, drink, watch movies, and sleep, the Casino Jet Lounge isn’t just a bar or entertainment idea. We see it as a social space.”
The issues for this idea are the below:
Currently online gambling is available to the passengers from their mobile devices through the Internet Access that all airlines are offering in the long distance flights. So for make this idea to work the airlines should limit the internet access to the passengers.
A second issue is the space that it is required in he airplane. This issue can be solved without reducing the number of seat in the plane by creating this social lounge down near to the bottom of the plane, where the cargo is stored.
The third and most complex issue is the Legal troubles that can be caused from the different regulations that every country has about the casino. For example: In the UK, where online gambling is regulated, the flight casinos could take off. A second example: In the US, online gambling is not yet regulated, and gambling on an aircraft has been banned in the country since 1994.
If the above issues finally will be resolved than the project will definitely find a lot of potential byers.
