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.
- Gary Kelly is frighteningly tall. I mean, seriously. I look like a midget in that photo.
- Absolutely no work gets done at Southwest on Halloween. I’m honestly surprised they even fly planes.
- 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.
