JetBlue Is Changing From Coke To Pepsi And People Are Losing Their Minds

by joeheg

When news leaked that JetBlue was going to change their onboard catering options from Coke products to Pepsi products, people acted like this was the end of the world, losing all sense of perspective.

Currently, these are the beverages available onboard JetBlue:

  • Coke
  • Diet Coke
  • Coke Zero
  • Sprite
  • Sprite Zero
  • Seagram’s Ginger Ale
  • Seagram’s Seltzer Water
  • Seagram’s Tonic Water
  • Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail
  • Ocean Spray Orange Juice
  • Ocean Spray Apple Juice
  • Ocean Spray Pineapple Juice
  • Campbell’s Tomato Juice
  • Mr. & Mrs. T Bloody Mary Mix
  • Fuze Iced Tea
  • Dasani Bottled Water
  • Dunkin’ Coffee & Tea

Here are the products available after the changes take effect starting early June 2019:

  • Pepsi
  • Diet Pepsi
  • Sierra Mist
  • Sierra Mist Zero Sugar
  • Bubbly Lime Sparkling Water
  • Canada Dry Seltzer
  • Canada Dry Tonic
  • Canada Dry Ginger Ale
  • Apple & Eve Juices
  • Mr. & Mrs. T Bloody Mary Mix
  • Aquafina Water poured into glasses from 1.5L bottles (starting Q1 2020)
  • Dunkin’ Coffee & Tea

Now I am firmly in the #TeamCoke product camp, so I wasn’t a big fan of these changes. However, I didn’t lose it and start ranting on Twitter about the changes like these people, dubbing it #PepsiGate2019. Speaking in internet meme form:

No One:

JetBlue: “We’re refreshing our Core complimentary beverage lineup to offer customers exciting new product options they’ve asked for…”

There were Pepsi fans who were thrilled with the news (even though they’re wrong).

And then there are the people who don’t seem to care either way

Do you like Coke or Pepsi? I personally will be buying a bottle of Coke Zero to bring with me on the plane when flying JetBlue. I’ll still gladly take a better airline with deficient soda over a mediocre airline with my preferred carbonated beverage.

Obviously more people like Coke than Pepsi, so there is no way that this is a customer friendly move. That said, it doesn’t seem like a reason to avoid the airline.

Is Pepsi ok? No, it’s not.
