Yeah Yeah, I know it isn't much of a breakthrough, but for all of you Vanilla Coke Fans like myself, here is just another reason to fly your local lowfare carrier. I just recieved my businesswire email today and there it was, plain as day AIRTRAN FORGED AN AGREEMENT WITH COKE, and BECAME THE FIRST AIRLINE TO SERVE VANILLA COKE ONBOARD.

A tray of Vanilla Coke and Minutemaid Lemonade is added in addition to the normal complement of beverages. Most people won't touch Vanilla Coke but those that like it, usually younger folks, are very excited that we offer it.
I work for Southwest, but the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Southwest.

Is the stuff even any good?? I don't drink caffeine, so I've never had it, but I just don't think that I would care for it. Vanilla ice cream and Coke (Coke floats) were kind of gross when I had them several years ago. (Sorry about going off-topic)
I'm actually kind of surprised that Delta didn't introduce it, being -sort-of- a "flagship" carrier for Coke based in ATL. (Back on topic)

I'm not even going to comment any further. The email didn't tell me anything except that AIRTRAN WAS THE FIRST AIRLINE TO OFFER VANILLA COKE ONBOARD. Seiple, When I said fly your local lowfare carrier, you misunderstood me. I said fly your local LOWFARE carrier. Not Fly your Local Major Airline. I just thought you should know what I meant.
Gr8SlvrFlt, I for one am very excited that AirTran offers Vanilla Coke, I would usually just get the juices (and probably still will). It will be a matter of time before other airlines start offering it. Maybe not anytime soon as the airlines are kind of in an economic depression (AFAIK, and correct me if I am wrong but from what I have HEARD so far, AirTran, Southwest, jetBlue posted profits.) (If I left any others out, KINDLY let me know.) But the others posted losses.

Westjet was supposed to add it in August or September. So unless they didn't then maybe they are the first airline but I read in Westjet's onboard magazine that they were adding it so perhaps it is not right.

I'm sorry, I forgot.... Southwest isn't a major airline. How silly of me.... <<
Obviously BR715-A1-30's post went right over Seiple's head, so I'll spell it out for Mr. Seiple:
He's saying Southwest has become a major carrier just like the rest, rather than a local low-fare carrier like AirTran is and Southwest used to be.

didn't notice it on your last FL flight BR? It has been onboard for a couple months now I believe.
I know that I'm the last person to be saying this, but AirTran is starting to mimic VJet again. Opening a focus city in the DC Area, planning on acquiring larger aircraft types(717-300), and is now having ads for their water in the timetable(look back a-ways to the 95/96 VJet timetables).

A Soda can can actually last up to 30 years with soda in it.
After that, the soda will become acidic, eat up the aluminum can and leak.
One day I heard they'd like to solve this problem by starting to use steel cans that are as light as aluminum cans, as cheap, and last much longer.
With modern technology, steel can be made as thin and as light as aluminum cans. The problem though is the cost. The cost of steel will need to be lowered before, unless everyone is willing to pay more for soda can.
So you can keep a soda lasting more than 30 years without leaking.
