It’s been an eventful week here at Southwest Airlines, and not just for obvious reasons. Spirit Week happens annually, as a way to celebrate the Company’s great Culture.
During the year, we focus on exhibiting three principles: A Warrior’s Spirit, a Servant’s Heart, and a Fun LUV-ing Attitude. I’m the new guy, and will be for awhile, so this is all fresh for me. Still, I can say with confidence that Spirit Week takes our Culture to a superhuman level.
We’re mostly extraverts here – you don’t have to twist anybody’s arm to get an example of what we’re about. Below are some pictures from around the system that help illustrate my point.
Hulk Hogan exhibits Southwestamania at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT. Glad he didn’t show up as the Hulk who wore all dark clothes.
One of our friends at El Paso International Airport (in El Paso, TX) ushers in a plane with spirit. I think he did a high kick as Customers disembarked.
Southwest Airlines Employees gather around Headquarters in Dallas, TX for a pep rally, to hear CEO Gary Kelly speak. Thumbs up for their Southwest cheers, too.
Southwest Employees, rooting for the Texas Longhorns, pulled this Boeing 737 to victory in the 2010 Pigskin Plane Pull. Maybe next year, Sooners.
