Ep 34: Southwest Airlines’ 50th Anniversary

As Southwest celebrates its 50th anniversary, Richard shares a fascinating trip through the iconic brand’s history, from its humble beginning as a regional carrier — with the famous “Texas Triangle” sketched on a cocktail napkin — to its emergence as the world’s largest low-cost carrier.
