Still doesn't explain how all this works without being connected to a bank, or by using one of the little gadgets from Natwest I showed that verifies the Pin or how the bank can send you a new card with the existing Pin.
PS, we don't have to go online and verify our new cards.
Well I didn't think it was very interesting.
A couple of irrelevant quotes from unknown websites.
The weakness of existing PINs is not answering your original question at all. And those statistics all rely on very dubious presumtions.
Mind you your PIN is definitely weak if NA stands behind you when you pay!!
Personally I ALWAYS look away when someone is paying, but then I'm straight and honest.
The original question is how does payment succeed if you change your PIN after the new card is posted and then pay at an unconnected terminal. All other configurations have been accounted for.
Actually it's amazing that no one on here knows whether a short haul Easyjet flight has connectivity or not.
My guess upthread is that there is no connectivity on many such aircraft.
And that in the outside chance that you changed your old PIN number just before you flew and then took a brand new card with you that had never bern inserted into a terminal then payment might well be refused.
Though it is your credit card that you need to change the PIN of, you have said. Which may or may not be your normal bank.
I am not so sure about Credit Card PINs. My applications always get refused.
