Uplift, a travel financial technology company, has announced a partnership with United Airlines that will let passengers travel now, but pay for their fares later. As part of the collaboration, the firm’s Pay Monthly facility will let travelers spread the cost of their fares over an 11-month period.

Travel financial technology company Uplift has announced that it is partnering with United Airlines to offer passengers the option to travel now, but pay for their fares later using the firm’s Uplift Pay Monthly facility.

Expanding Uplift’s flexible purchase option to flight tickets now allows even more customers to travel the world and create memories that will last a lifetime.”

Offering his comments, Brian Barth, CEO of Uplift, said, “Our mission to make travel more accessible, affordable and rewarding for everyone perfectly aligns with United’s purpose of connecting people and uniting the world.

"Fantastic way to get FOMO millennials trapped into even more debt with high interest rates" If they're too stupid to realize this on their own, why should I care?

It won't end well, but it will end the first time a passenger makes a time-pay reservation, and then 3 months later he finds out he needs surgery and won't be able to take the flight in another 6 months. He will stop making his payments on a flight he won't get refunded for, and the economic model for airline time payments will collapse.
