Per Internal Memo, coke will be offered beginning August 1st! ABOUT TIME. hah. NW/DL will still continue a business relationship by serving Frito-lay products, a divison of Pepsico.



I for one extremely happy in this. No more "is pepsi ok?"

What is so bad about having to connect in ATL?

I'd rather connect there rather than EWR, ORD, PHL etc...

The reason New Mexico is so windy is because Texas sucks and Arizona blows.

This development was ALMOST enough to make me jump ship when DL bought NW, but most of the other airlines don't give me different options (and I prefer not to fly AA most of the time). Truth be told, I'd pick AS and their tasty Jones Sodas over all the rest, but unfortunately they don't serve STL.  no

Much rather have a Pepsi. One of the best things about NW. DL, as the world's largest carrier, should step up to the #1 plate and offer both on their flights. If the logistics of it are an issue, we can live without some of that rarely-wanted stuff they serve now.

In addition to AA (which serves both colas, as part of their corporate travel contracts with PepsiCo), here's some airlines that I know off the top of my head that serve Pepsi exclusively:

US Carriers
YX
F9

International Carriers:
AF
KL
EK



I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.

Interestingly, in 2002, SkyTeam signed an alliance-wide agreement to serve Coke products. However, then NW joined SkyTeam in 2004 but maintained their agreement with Pepsi. Finally, in 2007 (I think), AF/KLM chose not to renew the alliance-wide agreement with Coke, and went on their own with Pepsi.

Does anyone know what do all of the other SkyTeam members serve?

Also, interesting that it was an AF Concorde that was painted in the Pepsi colours for marketing. Obviously, unrelated to whether AF serves Coke or Pepsi, but an interesting coincidence nonetheless.

Said contract was for a five-year period when it was signed, and it wasn't renewed. Thus, AF/KL put their soda contract up for bid again and Pepsi won it.

That's my one sad regret...I'm not a fan of hot caffeinated beverages and have no problem downing a Dew at 8 a.m. (did so this morning in fact). Coke's equivalent to Dew just doesn't cut it...

Logistics isn't the big deal - that'd be easy to work out. It's a cost thing - airline contracts with soda companies are multi-million dollar deals. DL probably has quite the deal with Coke to be serving only Coke products on their thousands of daily departures. In a time where every dollar counts, it makes sense from the accountants perspective to get the best possible deal out there.

I'm pretty excited about the addition of Sun Chips to the EATS menu. I remember getting Sun Chips in F on ATL-HNL a few years ago, but haven't seen them since. I love Sun Chips and they're not as greasy as many alternatives, so that will definitely be a welcome change. And I'm happy they're keeping Coke.  Wink

Hopefully they can come back as free in F - I miss my SunChips on board. The pretzel things are good, but I miss Sunchips...

26 DeltaCTO : In the Good-Old-Days Delta served Dr Pepper. No Coke product can compare Within the last 3 or 4 years, Sun Chips were one of the FREE snacks in coach

29 Davescj : I have to say, I find the EATS menu not overly exciting. I try and time trips of the meal. If I'm in F, I'll eat their food. If not, I'll bring it on

31 DL752 : Excellent! Coca-Cola is so refreshing. Hope they enjoy! DL752
32 KaiGywer : They don't really have an equivalent I'd say. Mello Yello or Vault are no comparison. However, Coke is a lot better than Pepsi.

38 Jet13 : Coca-Cola aka my addiction!
39 CrimsonNL : Yeah its a shame, I loved it at FL350! Not a big fan of other popsi products though, I like coca cola better.
40 DescendVia : And 3 to 4 years ago you were paying 50% more on a ticket which would afford the option of giving you free stuff.
41 HZ747300 : Dr. Pepper anyone? AA used but no more... by the way, in Asia it's all Coca-Cola, except on Virgin which has its own cola.
42 TwinOtter : Amazes me that people will fight passionately over whether goat piss tastes better than sheep piss. I don't understand why adults like any soda pop.
43 Manfredj : So just another list of carriers who carry coke only....why is this good news? Isn't it nice to have a little difference? I always thought it made NW
44 Bobnwa : I don't believe I have ever met an adult who did not have a soda occasionally.
45 WorldTraveler : sorry to break the news but it is far more about marketing rather than passenger preference. An exclusive contract for either Coke or Pepsi is worth
46 FWAERJ : Coca-Cola offers the ever-populsr Monster Energy Drink (WN offers it as a "premium beverage"). WN still serves Dr Pepper. After all, they're from Tex
47 ALBNWA4 : Who cares its just a can or in some cases a cup of soda. If you prefer something different buy it before you get on the plane!
