Herb Kelleher on Southwest History: The Early Battles

Not applicable


Not too long ago I was lucky enough to be in the same room with our Founder and Chairman Emeritus Herbert D. Kelleher—better known as “Herb” and as is so often the fact, find myself with some recording equipment. This works out well for me because as a multimedia specialist it is a big chunk of my job to record things and share them with you—the non-multimedia specialists. This is part two of the series where Herb talks about some of the early fights and what it took to get this airline off the ground.

If you missed part one, it is from April 14 and it, too, is some top-notch podcasting.
