Behold a profiteering innovation.

Instead of selling sugary or salty snacks, this vending machine sells the same stuff you can get for free in countless dispensers. It accepts state of the art mobile payment in the form of Apple Pay, for an added fee of course.

Where would you expect to find this kind of gouging? Here’s a hint, it’s where you can also find a six dollar bottle of water. I’m talking about the airport of course! Home of the captive audience.

A rule of thumb when traveling is to bring your own stuff so as not to spend an arm and a leg.

Enjoy your flight.
