Family atmosphere Staff Airline Deregulation Act Informality and Humor Managerial Tactics Credibility and Caring Athena Goddess Deregulation and Expansion 1. More frequent flights between current destinations 2. Open new routes to California and the Midwest 3. Buy more airplanes to increase the number of flights What do we think of our CEO? Concept Questions Concept Questions Able to maintain the Southwest model 1978 congress passes Airline Deregulation Act Southwest given opportunity to expand Expands to first state outside of Texas by operating in New Orleans, Louisiana Intermission Low external interactions No baggage fees How did Southwest actually respond?

Was able to avoid massive layoffs Employees Forced to buy a second seat No first class or "frills" Herb Kelleher says "employees come first" Wesleyan University Met future wife Joan Negley Persuaded to try a career in law New York University Law School Stayed up all night drinking and partying Essentially removed government's role in airfare pricing and entry into the industry by airlines like Southwest Over Drinks Marketing 1990 turned an overall profit 1991 had very large expansion; 30 more planes than the prior year along with 5 more cities 1995 reached $2.8 billion in operating revenues Sued by the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth to move their airline to the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport in accordance with agreement signed by other airlines in 1968, even though Southwest did not exist to sign it! Southwest argued to stay in Lovefield, Texas, their original base of operations “Southwest Airlines would not be in existence today had not the other carriers been so rotten, trying to sabotage us getting into business, and then trying to put us out of business once we got started. They made me angry. That’s why Southwest is still alive. I’m not going to get beaten, and I’m not going to let anyone take advantage. They were too stupid to realize the psychology of the situation, so they just kept plowing ahead" Every person and every job is worthy just as much as any other person and any other job Herb Kelleher's Management Style The 7 S Model Factors of Cohesion Outside Critics Still manages to keep employee productivity high $17 billion in revenue United, Delta, and AMR have larger revenues Share price: approx. $9.00 Grown and stayed stable 'Nuts about Southwest' Relational Coordination Effective Communication of Ideas Departments granted power for veto when hiring It was officially passed to encourage the use of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, but underhandedly targeted at stopping Southwest from expanding Low Pay "The Southwest Way" Longer hours than competition Profit Commuter flight for the masses Primary Goals Employees on Kelleher Relationship Lens: Be fair and consider those with no power Shared attitudes and values Similarities with Jack Welch Cut costs Creativity and innovation Professional informality culture Passion So...
