A few days ago, Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu wrote in his blog that he really would like to have access to the Internet during the flights with his favorite airline Lufthansa. However, he admits that it can get really expensive playing poker high up in the sky. Not from own experience, but from what he heard from a Swedish friend who hoped to win some money to pay for his ticket but instead ended up losing $250k!
"I hung out in LA yesterday since my flight overseas leaves out of LA. I love flying Luftansa but desperately wished they had internet access on the planes. They used to, and I know this because one of my Swedish friends took that flight overseas and played online poker on the way in the hopes of paying for his flight. Instead, he went off for 250k lol... now that's an expensive flight!"
