...oh, they'll still take your money all right, but United accelerates the push toward no-cash cabins on April 20, when flight attendants will accept only credit cards or debit cards for purchases on flights in North America. No plastic, no snack for you!
United Express flights are not included.
I love the way airlines use language. United has branded this no-cash, credit-cards-only change as ... EasyPurchase. They'll be branding the toilets next.
United began accepting credit cards for onboard purchases two weeks ago. Obviously, this is welcomed by flight attendants, who don't have to go scrounging for change.
By the way, speaking of credit cards, is there any airline affinity credit card that's worse than US Airways' Dividend Miles Premier World Master Card?
