Herb Kelleher's Last Year

Herb Kelleher just presided his last meeting at Southwest. He is retiring from the post of chairman.

Breathes cigarette smokes, takes to whiskey like fish to water.

Loved by his crew... Loved ??? An airline executive ???

Why, yes.

This is Herb Kelleher. Not some obnoxious MBAs in an expensive suit thinking they can run an airline.

Of course, he is not dead.

Maybe he'll start another airline.
