Status Of Southwest Leather Seat Upgrades?

Thu Jun 14, 2007 3:09 am

Hi folks.

I am planning on sending my parents to Santa Fe (ABQ, of course) for the Indian Art Festival in August.
From Dallas, the choice is WN or AA, obviously.

My question is whether Southwest has completed the leather seat conversions on its aircraft yet. I know they started some time ago, but haven't followed WN as closely as I do other carriers.

Can't make up my mind as to which carrier, but I won't ask you opinion here, or the over zealous moderator will move my post to "opinion polls" and I will lose all my exposure here, where someone can actually answer my question.

Thanks!

I believe WN has completed the conversions - perhaps someone at WN can confirm?

Yes, 100%. Been that way for quite a while. I recommend WN especially if you are closer to Love Field or don't want to deal with the nightmare DFW experience. Have fun, Jeff

The conversions have been complete for almost two years.

Thanks, everyone, for your replies.

Anybody have any guesses as to which 737 variant they fly between DAL and ABQ??? I'd love for my folks to get on the -700's, but I suspect that on such a short leg... it wouldn't work that way.

Luck of the draw, I've been on both 300s and 700s between DAL & ABQ, what's the difference?

Nicer cabin, mainly, coupled with quieter engines and a way nicer instrumentation. Although, WN does have HUD on all their aircraft...

If today is any indication, out of 8 DAL-ABQ flights, 6 are -700s and the other 2 are -300s.

Not quite. None of the four recently acquired used -700s have HUDs yet...
