Which airlines still have playing cards? Lufthansa and Swiss Air still do, but American has told me several times they do not "for economy passengers." Not sure if that means they have them for business/first or not.

Quoting PHLBOS (Reply 1): Southwest still has them. On a PHL-BDL flight last August, I saw a flight attendant give one to a passenger that requested it.
yeah when i told the FA that it was my first WN flight and i loved flying she gave me 2 packs of cards, 2 hard bag tags and all the drinks and peanuts i wanted, plus got me a cockpit tour when we landed
That would be a challenge in turbulent skies Oh, add to that Pick Up 104 (similar to Pick Up 52) and that could be done once the structure has fallen over! Sounds quite stupid doing that in a plane: you might end up having to buy another pack!

Quoting FlyingColours (Reply 13): Excel does as does First Choice - odd thing was with both airlines they were buy one and get another pack free, what could you do with 104 cards aside build a large card house
A loooooooong gave of [insert 52-card game]
Some games require 104 cards, though...

Quoting Halcyon (Reply 6): At home I have a set of Continental ones featuring the 787, but I do not know if they are still made.
Assuming that you didn't make a typo. reg. the plane type; if the plane in question is the 787, chances are that's those cards may be still produced... especially since CO (or anybody else) for that matter hasn't taken delivery of their first 787 plane yet.
Were those cards given on a flight or bought elsewhere?
