Other major airlines are likely to follow suit as Apple Pay becomes more and more popular as a form of contactless payment. 

JetBlue Airways will soon become the first major U.S. airline to accept Apple Pay for in-flight purchases, including your beloved tomato juice (though you should consider swapping for the more complex Bloody Mary mix), cocktails, and other air-friendly snacks.

According to Crain’s New York, Apple Pay will roll out beginning next week, starting with select transcontinental flights between New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

Passengers will be able to use Apple Pay to pay for food and drinks and other perks, like extra leg room.

Customers are also expected to be able to upgrade their seats via Apple Pay.

JetBlue Airways is expected to expand Apple Pay to other flights in March, and aims to cover its full network of flights by June.

As part of the program, Jet Blue will provide more than 3,500 flight attendants with iPad minis that accept both Apple Pay and credit cards.
