Jean Segura Trades Places With Southwest Airlines

Today at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport, Jean Segura  took on some unusual jobs as he Traded Places with a crew from Southwest Airlines, the Club’s official airline.

Southwest Airlines invited Jean, along with Bernie Brewer and the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, to surprise some unsuspecting customers as Jean did everything that Southwest employees do on a daily basis.  Marshal in planes, ride a tug, make boarding announcements and take boarding passes–it was all a part of the special event.  It was great to see the look on the faces of passengers and airport workers when walking through the terminal with Jean and the mascots–and some of the reaction afterward on social media (I’m sure there will be more when they land!).

Carlos Gomez and Jim Henderson Trade Places With Southwest Airlines

Last week at Milwaukee’s General Mitchell International Airport, Carlos Gomez and Jim Henderson took on some unusual jobs as they Traded Places with a crew from Southwest Airlines.

Southwest Airlines invited Henderson and Gomez to surprise some unsuspecting customers as they did everything that Southwest employees do on a daily basis.  Marshal in planes, ride a tug, make boarding announcements and take boarding passes–it was all a part of the special event.  It was great to see the look on the faces of passengers and airport workers when walking through the terminal with two Brewers players.
