Three Things I Learned at Southwest’s Halloween Contest

It was a fun day at Southwest headquarters today when I was invited with three other bloggers (Holly Hegeman of PlaneBusiness/PlaneBuzz, Ellen Wernecke of Jaunted, and Grant Martin of Gadling) to be guest judges for their annual Halloween contest. I dressed myself up as a Canadian Mountie (Get it? They start their codeshare with WestJet up in Canada next year . . . yeah, I’m a dork), handed out Molsons, and had a lot of fun. But I did learn three important things while I was there.

Me and Southwest CEO Gary Kelly
  1. Gary Kelly is frighteningly tall. I mean, seriously. I look like a midget in that photo.

  2. Absolutely no work gets done at Southwest on Halloween. I’m honestly surprised they even fly planes.

  3. It is really hard to get the song Mamma Mia, er, SWAma Mia out of your head.

I’ll have a lot more details and pictures on Monday.
