When it's time to buy a beer or a sandwich or rent a headset, American
Airlines passengers can now say, "Charge it." American last week began
rolling out a new service letting passengers use American Express and
other credit and debit cards to pay for in-flight purchases. American,

passenger volume, expects the technology, which relies on wireless
handheld devices toted by flight attendants, will be available
systemwide by the middle of next month.
