...AND CHEAPER...:

Southwest slashes fares again (SUZANNE MARTA, November 1, 2006, The Dallas Morning News)

Last month, Southwest ignited the fare fight, shortly after a new federal law took effect allowing long-distance service from Dallas Love Field, which is Southwest’s home airport. The carrier offered introductory fares to 25 new destinations for $99 each way. [...]

Among cities that Southwest will serve with its $79 fare are Tampa, Fla., Philadelphia, Salt Lake City and Seattle. A $69 fare applies to Chicago, Albuquerque and Louisville, Ky. El Paso will be reachable for $59, New Orleans, Kansas City and St. Louis for $49, and Austin, Houston and Little Rock, Ark., for $39. Tickets must be purchased at least 14 days in advance.

If only Southwest flew Embraer 145s or 190s.....

OJ might blow a fuse.

I have had probably 10 flights on 737s delayed by equipment trouble (fuel pumps, oil pressure, electrical problems, etc.) - but I have never had a flight on an Embraer delayed because of the plane. Never.
