Happy Birthday to Two Southwest Legends!

One of the very cool nuances to Southwest’s story is that our Founder and Chairman Emeritus Herb Kelleher—and our current Chairman, President, and CEO Gary Kelly—share the same birthday, which happens to be today, March 12th! Herb and Gary share a lot more than just a birthday.  They both share a deep passion and LUV for Southwest Airlines.  They recently had a chance to sit down together and talk about Southwest, the future, and thoughts on Leadership.  We thought it was only appropriate to share a couple minutes from their conversation on their birthday.  We hope you’ll enjoy the video, and please join us in wishing these two Southwest Legends a very Happy Birthday!  Cheers, fellas!
