Today Show Interview With CEO of Southwest On The Crappy State Of Air Travel

We all know that air travel is crappy and getting crappier.

The Today Show asks Gary “Sit Anywhere” Kelly, CEO of Southwest Airlines, to explain himself in the above clip.

We enjoyed the part where Kelly is asked to explain how every airline at every airport has thirty 8:00 flights when everyone knows it’s impossible for that many planes to take off at the same time.

The answer? Pay more attention to your arrival time than your departure time, because your wait to take-off is built in.

We also love how big-media types are not afraid to ask the “tough” questions when it comes to something that personally irks them, like air travel hassles. After all, first class arrives at the same time as coach.
