Gary Kelly, Southwest Airline's CEO, Needs a Halloween Character

Not applicable

Halloween is always a big deal at Southwest Airlines.  Our Employees look forward to it for months.  For those of you who are as serious about Halloween as we are, you know that coming up with a costume that is not only good, but that is so perfect it knocks people’s socks off, takes weeks of preparation.

With only seven weeks until Halloween and no costume in mind, our CEO, President, Chairman, and once-a-year Halloween Superstar Gary Kelly needs your help in choosing his “knock your socks off” Halloween costume.

This is your chance to help select “who” or even “what” Gary will be for Halloween.  Our good friends at Spirit Halloween Stores will then transform the selected idea into one masterpiece of a costume.

In the past few years, Gary has filled the shoes of Gene Simmons from KISS, Old West Legend, Wild Bill Hickok, Captain Jack Sparrow, Edna Turnblad, and Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top.  Last year, he even filled the ruby slippers of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, if you can believe it!

Following these amazing costumes, Gary needs all the help he can get to think of something bigger and better!  Give us your most creative idea; think outside the box.  Help Gary outdo his previous costumes!

Leave Gary your suggestion, and on Halloween, be sure to check out Nuts About Southwest for the unveiling of Gary’s Halloween 2010 persona.  You never know, he may be the walking, talking version of your idea!
