For this week’s intern photo contest, I wondered where it was difficult to use cash. I first thought of places where it was impossible to use cash and then places where it was just simpler not to use cash. It was actually really hard to think of a situation! I’ve grown so accustomed to using my card for anything and everything I had forgotten the last time I did use cash. I then thought about my last trip and remembered that I couldn’t use cash on my flight. My cashless flight.
If I wanted something other than the free drink and snack, which let’s face it, everyone does, I had to purchase the items with my card and not cash. The reason being is that it is much safer and cleaner to use cards as opposed to cash. I couldn’t imagine getting through the rest of my 5 hour flight solely on a tiny pack of pretzels and a miniature bottle of water.
