American Airlines goes cashless

AMERICAN AIRLINES domestic flights on the continental USA, Canada and Hawaii have started to not accept cash for snacks, meal, headsets and other onboard services.  Flight attendants will now accept all major credit or debit cards in payment for these items instead of paper money.  The cabin crew will use onboard register machines to take payment and issue receipts if requested to do so.  This will mean no more need to carry cash onboard the aircraft and save time whilst trying to find change for the passengers.  Cabin crew have been using these machines for a number of months on international services so many personnel will be familiar with them already.  However, American Eagle and AmericanConnection services will still accept cash only. www.aa.com
