Southwest Airlines’ legendary co-founder Herb Kelleher dies at 87

Herb Kelleher moved to Texas in 1962 with plans for a career in law. Instead, his early legal battles on behalf of an upstart airline propelled him to the top of the aviation industry as he led Southwest Airlines in its fight to remake air travel with low fares and a fun-loving attitude. Kelleher, the legendarily colorful co-founder and longtime executive who embodied the spirit of the Dallas-based airline, died Thursday. He was 87. Dallas News Wall Street Journal
