Not About Food 126

Credit only for food and drink items while flying...

(not sure where else to put this)

Am mostly affected by this due to Air Canada's recent changes to move to a fully cashless cabin, but wondering what others thoughts are on it. I find it incredibly inconvenient, as the only time I really use a credit card is for business, otherwise lately I've used either cash, debit, or Visa gift cards (which incidentally are accepted just about everywhere else....except Air Canada).

Besides which, I wouldn't really care to use a credit card to purchase a $6 glass of wine or a $3 can of Pringles....i'm talking shorter haul flights or off timed, so that they don't serve meals

I think this is a very limiting move on an airline's part.
