I was suprised to find WN so far behind some of the other carriers, but I was nice to see that NWA was in the lead.

TG 747-300 - here's something from Plane Business that might help you understand why SWA appears so low:

Southwest was down 12.3 points to 53.4%. However, remember, as we mentioned the other night, Southwest did not reduce its schedule on September 15th, as many other carriers did--so these numbers should be upped about 15-20% to make a true apples to apples comparison with the other results.
