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.

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.
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?

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.
