Southwest Employees enjoying Stats Sports Bar

I’m here at the Southwest Block Party in downtown Atlanta starting at Stats sports bar talking with some new Southwest employees. Overall, I am finding that Southwest seems to take care of not only their customers, but their employees too. Antonio Blue, an employee with AirTran for 6 years, said that he loved the “employee first… family atmosphere” that Southwest brought to the workplace. Lamoyne Hines got me interested in my flight to Baltimore tomorrow. He said one noticeable change I should expect is the “top of the line” new gate entrances in Hartsfield. I’m particularly excited about all the new outlets Lamoyne said the new gates will have (it’s the little things in life that make me happy). Southwest apparently brought that “top of the line” flavor to the new break room for the employees as well. Oh, they enjoy the parties that their new bosses throw too.
I also grabbed this picture of Brookes Thomas, a Southwest blogger who will be at the airport bright and early in his finest peach outfit. Here’s how he looks pre-peachification. I’ll have an after pic tomorrow when I catch him running around. the concourse.
