United cabins to go cashless on North American routes

1 Mar 2009 by Mark Caswell

United passengers flying on routes within the US and to and from Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean will soon need a credit or debit card to make purchases in-flight.

The carrier will accept card payments on these routes from March 23, for purchases such as meals, beverages and headphones, and after a changeover period it will cease to accept cash from this summer (the exact date has yet to be confirmed).

United will however continue to accept both card and cash payments on transatlantic and other long-haul flights.
