Southwest and Second City Fly the "Funny" Skies

Frequent Flyer A

I don't want to brag, but I think it's fair to say Southwest is probably the "funniest" airline out there. We've got the rapping Flight Attendant, Herb Kelleher doing the "Just Plane Fun Shuffle Fun" music video, and a gazillion hilarous commercials...including some oldies that are still floating around on YouTube.

I also think it's fair to say Second City, the worldwide famous improv-based sketch comedy troupe in Chicago, can also say they're the funniest, too. They completely changed the face of Chicago comedy, and are especially famous for providing Saturday Night Live and Hollywood with fresh comedy stars on an annual basis.

Where am I going with all this? Well, just hold your horses. Second City and Southwest have teamed up this Friday to fly an all-Second City star-filled flight from LAX to Chicago Midway. The flight will be met by a red carpet event, fellow celebrities, and even the Governor of Illinois.

Stay tuned to this blog for pictures of the event...we'll also be tweeting live, so be sure to follow @southwestair for the inside scoop on Second City's 50th Anniversary weekend extravaganza!

Our fabulous and hard-working Flight Crew.
