According to a press release, “Southwest Airlines® Introduces Pay With Amazon, Enhancing Customer Experience Onboard WiFi-Equipped Aircraft,” instead of paying with a credit card onboard Southwest flights, you can now pay with your Amazon account.
Southwest Airlines Introduces Pay With Amazon
Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV) is excited to welcome Pay with Amazon onboard WiFi-equipped aircraft, offering Customers a new and convenient way to purchase products through the carrier’s onboard entertainment portal, powered by Global Eagle Entertainment. The new payment platform offers Customers the security of using their Amazon account to purchase products.
Rather than pulling out a credit card, Customers accessing the onboard entertainment portal now have the opportunity to purchase WiFi, messaging, and movies using Pay with Amazon. When asked for payment, Customers who choose the Pay with Amazon option will be directed to log in with their Amazon account credentials to complete their purchase.
When onboard Southwest you will now reportedly have the option to pay with Amazon. You will need to log in to your Amazon account with your login and password to make your purchase.
This is an interesting option that Southwest has added for customers to be able to pay with their Amazon account. What do you think about this option? Do you think that you would use it? I personally love Amazon but, I am not sure that I would want to log in to my Amazon account to pay onboard a Southwest flight.
