JetBlue first U.S. airline to support Apple Pay for in-flight payments
JetBlue notes that it offers passengers "EatUp snack boxes and à la carte food options from the EatUp Café, premium beverages, onboard amenities and Even More Space seating." With the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus and soon the Apple Watch, those using Apple Pay can quickly pay for these items.
To help the flight crew accept Apple Pay, 3500 of them will be given an Apple iPad mini with special NFC-enabled cases. Each iPad mini will have a special app called The Inflight Service Assistant pre-installed. The app will give the crew members on each flight access to the passenger manifest and flight data. It also will identify loyalty club members. Using the app, the flight crew can easily identify passengers belonging to either the TrueBlue and Mosaic clubs and wish them a Happy Birthday, for example. JetBlue pilots already use iPads to receive weather information in real-time and to hold flight and safety documents.
