It's All About Coke On United

CHICAGO (AP) -- United Airlines has signed a five-year agreement with Coca-Cola, making Coke its primary soft-drink supplier instead of Pepsi-Co and Cadbury.

The partnership means that as of today, United passengers will choose from among eight Coca-Cola drinks -- Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Sprite Zero, Spring Water, Seagrams Ginger Ale, Tonic and Seltzer Water.

United is a unit of Elk Grove Village-based U-A-L Corporation.

United cited the economic benefits of the new arrangement but did not offer specifics.

A Coca-Cola spokesman also declined to release a volume estimate for the deal involving its new customer.

Besides onboard beverage offerings, United will also offer Coca-Cola products in its airport lounges and offices later this year.
