What’s the big deal? I can’t use cash on an airplane where my options - going somewhere else - are fewer.

I’m against the cashless model, so I’m glad that the chain is listening to customer feedback to maintain cashiers and cash payments. Cashless excludes too many folks who don’t have credit cards or bank accounts. And yes, you can put money on a Visa cash card, but cash just makes sense for a lot of us.

Thanks. It’s so “elitist” of me to make the assumption that everyone has one or the other. My apologies. Seems like I know too many people who are up to their eyeballs in CC debt but DO have them.

Even if you do have credit cards, I don’t necessarily want to pull it out for some French fries and a milkshake. :roll_eyes:
