Coke or Pepsi which one??

I have heard that HP has Pepsi on it's flights and we all know US uses coke. Who will carry over after all and all is complete? I don't like Pepsi products. Sprite is my drink of choice. Will the two beverage companies have a bidding war who gets the contract for the new US Airways?

Count on it. In a prior life I worked for a key vendor to HP. Even back in the day when they were making money (and there was such a day, once upon a time), they were notorious for hammering every penny out of their vendors. I've heard it is worse now, which isn't hard to imagine. Lowest price will almost certainly prevail.

I was thinking this was a joke thread at first then found myself thinking "I actually DO care"... I don't drink many cokes (sorry, soda or pop for some of you) but when I do a coke is a coke... maybe its a southern thing...
Growing up anything carbonated was a coke (this includes sprite, that orange stuff, etc), its that ingrained.

I personally hope that Coke prevails as I'm a Diet Coke guy. When on HP I drink Diet 7 up or perhaps a Diet Dr. Pepper....

Coke 95% of the way, with Mountain Dew as my only Pepsi choice.

Definitely a southern thing. I spent 6 months living in Jackson, MS. I found it very funny when going out to eat with co-workers the conversation would go like this:

co-worker: "I'll have a Coke."
server: "What kind would you like?"
co-worker: "Root beer please."


me: "I'll have a Coke."
server: "What kind would you like?"
me: "uh, Coke."

I concur- the other conversation pretty common only in the south is:

Southerner: "I'll have a Coke please"
Server: "Is pepsi OK"
Southerner: "No, water please"

In most of the country, they would just bring you a pepsi and not tell you it wasn't coke. But there is definitely a difference.

From an old SNL skit with John Belushi... "Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger... Pepsi, no Coke.

It was late 70s... all you CP kiddies weren't born yet.

I prefer Pepsi One, then Diet Pepsi, Diet Dr. Pepper... then Diet Coke if I'm desparate. I have tried the Coke Zero, and it's not bad. Tastes like Pepsi One.

Now, do you prefer your diet plain, with lemon or with lime (assuming the fruit is available, that is)? I'll do the fruit if available, but it's not a requirement.

It's worse in Boston. Everything was/is a "tonic" (even listed on the signs over the grocery aisles). Imagine recceiving a tonic water the first time I ventured out of Boston

P.S. It's Coke, no Pepsi for me now

I say Coke all the way, but I hail from the city where Coke was first bottled.

I couldn't agree more with this:

"I'll have a Coke please"
"Is Pepsi okay?"
"I'll just have water."

I actually said that about 2 days ago

Coke all the way! Its the original.

If I wanted a Pepsi, I would have put water in my Coke.

"Makers Mark and Coke, please"

"We don't have Coke, just Pepsi"

"As long as there's Makers, you can add Krusty Brand Kola, for all I care."

I vote for Coke products. Diet Coke is my preferred drink.

Pepsi is the best. It's not "watered down Coke." It's sweeter than Coke. My husband who "LOVED" Coke refused to drink Pepsi, but we ran out of Coke and he started drinking the Pepsi and liked it. He only prefers Coke with his Maker's Mark...something about the Coke and whiskey flavor that makes his day.
