American will no longer accept cash

Posted by stephen on February 11, 2009

American Airlines will begin transition to cashless cabins onboard flights within the United States and to and from Canada. By summer, the Fort Worth-based carrier will only accept debit and major credit cards for onboard purchases such as drinks, snacks, headsets or other items during these flights.

Flight attendants will be equipped with hand-held sales recorder to charge credit and debit cards, eliminating the need to search for small bills or change. Receipts will be provided to passengers upon request.

American joins the ranks of major airlines that have introduced cashless cabins, including Southwest, Frontier, JetBlue, AirTran, Midwest, Virgin America and Alaska Airlines.
