JetBlue Airways to Only Accept Credit or Debit Cards In-Flight
By Liz Morris
JetBlue Airways announced Monday that soon cash will no longer be king on board its flights—in fact, cash won’t even be accepted. Starting November 1, only credit cards and debit cards will be accepted aboard JetBlue flights.
“The hunt for stray dollars and cents is over for our customers,” said Brett Muney, Manager, Product Development for JetBlue Airways.
The move will also mean flight attendants will no longer have to deal with cash or worry about making change for passengers. Obviously, however, some customers who were perfectly content to use cash will be forced to bring a card along and use it if they need drinks or make other purchases during a flight.
JetBlue flight attendants will use handheld credit card readers to charge passengers’ in-flight purchases.
