Southwest Airlines has finally condescended to apologize to the mini-skirted customer that it tried to kick off a flight…
Self-confessed “PR lover” and Southwest CEO Greg Kelly said:
“From a Company who really loves PR, touche to you Kyla! Some have said we’ve gone from wearing our famous hot pants to having hot flashes at Southwest, but nothing could be further from the truth. As we both know, this story has great legs, but the true issue here is that you are a valued Customer, and you did not get an adequate apology. Kyla, we could have handled this better, and on behalf of Southwest Airlines, I am truly sorry. We hope you continue to fly Southwest Airlines. Our Company is based on freedom even if our actions may have not appeared that way. It was never our intention to treat you unfairly and again, we apologize.”
Southwest also took this opportunity to launch something called “Mini-skirt fares.” Not kidding. Being serious.
