Monarch Airlines has become the first European airline to accept PayPal, letting passengers buy tickets online without using a credit or debit card.
The deal’s being touted by both as an increase in security that protects against “card-not-present” fraud; but PayPal itself has fallen victim to one or two sophisticated “phishing” scams of late.
Most of us know PayPal through selling stuff on eBay. Why don’t they just kill two birds with one stone and start auctioning flights?
