Happy National Fried Chicken Day!

Not applicable
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. image1 Popeyes also celebrated their Louisiana heritage by handing out Mardi Gras beads, bracelets and t-shirts. image2 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.
