Blue Pepsi On KLM

Fri Dec 12, 2003 9:40 am

Just received KLMs newsletter...

"Pepsi Blue on KLM
Throughout the month of December, KLM will be offering our passengers a special soft drink, Pepsi Blue, in a cooperative effort with Pepsi-Cola. On all KLM flights from Amsterdam, the blue cola is available in specially-designed Pepsi cans."

It sounds fun, I would like to have special made Pepsi too  Laugh out loud

No difference between Pepsi Blue and what they use in the lavs.


I hate that stuff.

It's a blueberry-ish pepsi.. I really liked it, but I guess a lot of ppl didn't..

Now, in Canada, they have this variation of Sprite called Sprite Ice.. The stuff is SOOOOOO GOOD!!! It's like Spearamint sprite. Wish they sold it here, but hey.. it's only 2 hrs away  Smile

Apparently KLM got a deal on the overstock from Pepsi.

I flew KLM from AMS to OTP last sunday and I asked for a Coke : The F/A asked me if it was all right to serve me a blue pepsi. I accepted and it tasted like, Pepsi. I was thinking, if it tastes the same, why go through the trouble of making it blue ?

Blue is my favourite colour so no sweat but flying KLM gives you an overdose of Blue more than ever...

Lufthansa, whenever you ask for a Diet Coke, gives you the lemon version, asking if it is ok to serve you the lemon version, because that's what they have.

The passenger deserves to be protected from this new kind of faux-advertising...

Ugh, lemon diet Coke. They tried to market that stuff in Japan. It ended up in discount lots.

As for Blue Pepsi...I suppose it's worth the try. Then again, every few years, Pepsi tries something wierd. Remember that Crystal Pepsi? The clear one, about 10 years ago? That was some wierd stuff.

Why is KLM trying to offer Pepsi Blue, which I hate with a passion?  Nuts

They should have offered Vanilla Pepsi, which is actually good (as compared to Vanilla Coke, which has this overbearing cream soda taste  Nuts ).

Blue Pepsi, Lemon-Lime Pepsi and now standard Pepsi, along with the complete range of sweetened carbonated waters, were found to contain high levels of pesticide chemicals, in India. Both Pepsi & Coke went to court to sue the labs which published these results, but withdrew their cases.

Now we simply don't get them on flights anymore.

The Blue Pepsi KLM serves now is not the stuff that failed in stores.
It's regular Pepsi with different artificial colouring added, that's the only difference to regular.

It's a test which might be extended if successful, or so I've heard.
I wish I were flying

I just flew AMS-IAH on KLM in Business World and was offered this Pepsi stuff. Strange that's the only (sort of) coke they serve. I don't want to be part of a commercial exercise!
Any KLM employees out there?? I will not go that far to say no more KLM, but my image of KLM got a dent.

KLM agent here. KL delivered a few cases of Pepsi Blue to AUA for KL ground crew here. I personally hate that stuff. It tastes awful. I gave my six pack (now 5 pack) away to my colleagues at AA who occupy the office next to us. Good riddance.  Sad

Pepsi blue is catered on flights out of AMS only in december this year. The regular Pepsi is catered as well so don't understand what's the problem. I'm a flight attendant for KLM and so far only got nice reactions. People who don't like it just drink the regular stuff. As for myself, prefer Coke!

I remember it being around summer 2002, haven't seen it for a long while.

IMO, its bad. It tastes like carbonated blueberry cool aid.

Yes! Thank god I am not the only one who thinks that.
I just flew KLM this weekend and I did not hear anything about this. It was never offered to me by the crew. Well then again my crew were not the "spectacular" KLM I am used too. I had a choice between regular coke and regular Pepsi. Nothing out of the ordinary.

CptGirmayTesfa; KLM switched from Coca Cola to Pepsi a few months ago because they could save 550.000 euro's through combined purchase together with NWA..... (at least that's the reason they told us)
