Hello, its my first time here. I don't see why anyone has a problem with Southwest. Yeah, the planes are ugly, but the seating is just as confortable as that on other domestic narrow-bodies. Plus, the service is great. They come through with coffee constantly, and they don't mess with airline food to keep the ticket prices low and the turn-around times quick. I was on a American MD-80 for 3 1/2 hours a month ago, and they came through the cabin once with a beverage, and soggy bananna bread shreads. Finally the 737 is a reliable plane, and it is very cheap comared to the a320. And yes they have operated planes other than the 737. Back in the mid-80's they leased a few 727-200's for about a year. Overall, Southwest has got a good thing going.
