There used to be a time years ago when nervous fliers going to Kansas City International Airport could stop at a vending machine and buy travel insurance.
It was to give people who were skittish about getting on planes some piece of mind so they wouldn’t feel as if flying somewhere was a crapshoot. Now KCI starting next month will take the bold step of selling Missouri Lottery tickets at Terminal B.
Passengers and others will be able to buy lottery tickets at vending machines, The Kansas City Star reports. The high traffic terminal is home to Southwest, AirTran, Alaska and Delta airlines.
The lottery is a game of chance requiring nothing but sheer luck to win. Most ticket buyers are losers.
None of that seems to fit with the certainty and assurance that airports and airplanes are supposed to convey to passengers.
