Chief executives of other airlines have dressed up in costume for corporate Halloween events for years - see Southwest Airlines Gary Kelly dressed as Paul McCartney this year - but not at Amon Carter Blvd. Not until today.
Employees at American were treated to a dance routine to "Best Song Ever" by One Direction put on by American chief executive Doug Parker and other top executives at the carrier dressed as the British boy band.
Parker has a particular fondness for Halloween, mainly because it’s his birthday. While he was CEO at US Airways, every year, Parker dressed up in costume to celebrate the holiday with the rest of the corporate employees at the Phoenix-based airline.
Parker’s not the only executive to get into the Halloween spirit.
American president Kirby, apparently enjoys dressing in drag continuing his tradition of dude looks like a lady. This year, he appeared as Kei$ha, dancing to Timber, while executive vice president Elise Eberwein joined him as Pitbull.
