The return of Diet Dr. Pepper!

I know it's a little thing, but when WN started flying out of PVD back in 1996 they lured me in with their low fares, nonstops to MCO, and DIET DR. PEPPER! And then the Diet Dr. Pepper vanished. And I've lamented its loss ever since, but kept asking for it in the hope that my little "yawp" would someday be heard.

And I read yesterday's SWA update email and noticed this sidebar story: "Starting January 15, enjoy Diet Dr Pepper on all Southwest flights."

YAWP!

Thank you Southwest!!!!!

Now THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is an actual enhancement.

Especially since coupons are no longer accepted for Monster energy drinks.

Yippee!

While I'm neutral on it, this made my wife very happy this morning! Maybe I can actually get her to use the CP now!

This makes me mildly happy. I don't mind Diet Coke and Diet Sprite, but I prefer Diet Dr. Pepper.

Amen

Last month I had to take a non-WN flight for work and out of all the things, the real shock hit me when I went to order and said airline didn't have Dr. Pepper as an offering.

Add Fresca

I do like Diet Dr. Pepper but love Coke Zero and was a welcome addition.

Too bad they don't have fresca since it's a coke product. Delta has a great drink called something like a sky quencher that is vodka, fresca and a splash of cranapple.

This would have been great news for me. Unfortunately, many are boycotting Dr Pepper/Snapple products right now due to the hostile takeover of Dublin Dr Pepper.

Anytime airlines add instead of subtracting is great news. I am a DDP lover so this is especially good news. BTW I am drinking one on a SW flight while responsing on the WiFi

There's no period after the "r". The only way it is excusable is if you were born prior to 1950.
