I do my best to get a thoughtful post out for you every weekday, so I apologize that today is a very light one. See, I spent yesterday with Southwest Airlines, and I’m just now sitting down to do some writing. As I write this, it’s 10pm, I have an early flight out, and I’m tired. Tomorrow I head to Phoenix for the Aviation Symposium, so I will have plenty of good material coming up. It’s just going to be tough keeping my regular schedule this week.
So, come back tomorrow and hopefully I’ll do better. Until then, I’ll leave you with this picture.
Yep, that’s me and Southwest’s legendary founder Herb Kelleher. As you can see from the grin on my face, this was like a teenage girl meeting Miley Cyrus. I was definitely star-struck, and that doesn’t really happen often.
I’ll have more about our discussion and the rest of my visit to Southwest (including my time flying the simulator) as soon as I can get it together.
