Probably supersonic prices too.

All I know is if they fly it out of LAX, it's guaranteed to arrive late at its destination even if it flies at the speed of light.

personally the best thing would be to have a satellite hotel/casino in orbit so once your up there and come down its  less than 24 hrs to any where in the world . imagine sat/ladyboy full of bars no alcohol tax or boys in brown .

I'm just guessing that tossing dice in the weightlessness of space would add to the house edge casinos already have at the craps tables.

Wow! Excited for this! From what I heard, Boom expects to launch its supersonic passenger planes in 2025, with commercial flights beginning in 2029. Once operational, Overture is projected to be the first big commercial aircraft to be carbon-neutral from the start, having been designed to fly on 100 percent sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
