What could be more iconic than fried chicken on a summer day?
Today is National Fried Chicken Day, and to celebrate, Southwest Airlines partnered with Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen to surprise and delight some unsuspecting—and hungry—Customers in Atlanta with a picnic in the gate area.
Popeyes Brand Ambassadors handed out snack boxes filled with fried chicken strips and a biscuit for our Customers to enjoy as they waited to board their flights to New Orleans.
Popeyes also celebrated their Louisiana heritage by handing out Mardi Gras beads, bracelets and t-shirts.
At Southwest Airlines, we love showing our Customers hospitality during their travels, and partnering with Popeyes gave us a FUN way to treat our Customers with this tasty summer food staple.
