The A320s are wet-leased from Ryan International (no relation to Ryanair) until the 737s arrive about a year from now.
I work for Southwest, but the views expressed are my own and do not necessarily represent those of Southwest.

Air Tran is currently wet leasing A320s to handle LAS and LAX transcons from ATL, This will contiue unitl the 737s are ready to fly. They currently lease A320s because the didn't want to pass up lucrative opputunities at these two stations and are leasing the airbuses to do these runs since the current 717s don't have the range to make them.
