That’s right, many of you remember the fantastic little project Southwest did as a part of our entrance into LaGuardia this summer, correct? As many of you nod your heads, I’ll help out a few of those who are scratching theirs. Southwest opened the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park this summer as a way to introduce New Yorkers to the fabulous Southwest brand! See my June blog post to jog the ole' memory.
As a part of the experience we began a speaker series called Southwest Executive Chats. The idea was to have a casual atmosphere where our corporate clients, partners, and interested parties could learn a bit more about how Southwest achieves business success.
We were lucky enough to have Ginger Hardage at the Porch in August chatting about Southwest’s Culture and the secrets to keeping that Culture strong.
Last week, we featured Kevin Krone, Southwest’s Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Distribution. The fall season is perfect timing for Southwest to chat with folks about our Bags Fly Free philosophy and to explain that keeping things simple at Southwest creates Customer loyalty (and increases loads—little shout-out to finance).
So, if you’re in New York City in the coming months stop by and cool your heels at Bryant Park. We have some cool fall weather and an Adirondack chair with your name on it.
