This Southwest Gate Agent's Halloween Costume Was "on Fire"
There's no doubt that Southwest Airlines employees had the most fun at airports and in the skies this Halloween. Pictures quickly circulated around the internet of employees dressed up, greeting travelers as they came to check in for their flights and even the high-up executives dressing as former US presidents.
But one Southwest employee took her costume to another level and really brought some humor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 situation. As everyone knows by now, earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was banned on all planes by the Department of Transportation because they were exploding and the phone was deemed unsafe. So, of course, that made for a perfect costume choice.
The gate agent, based in Salt Lake City (SLC), apparently told people that they wouldn't let her get on the plane. All in good fun, of course — the costume was a winner in our eyes. Not to mention, the carrier didn't stop its Halloween festivities there — it gave away free drinks to passengers over the age of 21. Way to go, Southwest!
