Herb_on_Plane_Tail.jpg While looking through our photo archives, I found this picture of our Executive Chairman, Herb Kelleher, on the tail of one of our aircraft.  (Click on the picture to enlarge.)  Here's your chance to write your own caption for this photo of our beloved Leader of the Pack!

#1. Despite giving up his seat to a customer, Herb is still able to make it to the annual meeting on time. #2. Look up in the sky! It's a bird... no, it's a plane... well, it's a plane, but it's also...

"With assigned seating, I could be inside the plane enoying a nice JB on the rocks." or "Our Chairman does his darndest to ensure we arrive on-time." or "This is not what we mean by, "Ding, you are now free to move about the country."

It's not only customers who are "blown away" by the Southwest Experience or After consuming too much Wild Turkey on a flight, Herb is " hung out to dry"!

#1. I am out here because I lost an arm-wrestling match. #2. I was a minute late, and they had already shut the doors. But I grabbed onto the plane and will make it home on time. #3. This is better than riding a motorcycle. #4. The flight attendants caught me smoking in the bathroom again.

Suggestion: Instead of charging for ailse seats and emergency row seats, try charging for large on board bags that passengers jam into the overhead bins. The roll type bags are becoming a standard rather than the last minute boarding which it was originally intended for. I believe there are many bags that would not fit into those "measured" boxes that used to be at the boarding gates.
