f-mattox, SW is an interesting operation, and you just pointed that out. I am a pilot for Delta and I have tried to tell friends who only fly SW to check it out. SW only books through their website (at least to my knowledge). People think they are the cheapest, but if they do a little research they can find as cheap, or cheaper fares (as you did) with the legacy carriers. I once did a comparison from Las Vegas to New York on both SW and Delta, for the same day and time. Even with the additional $25 baggage fee Delta was $15 cheaper. I know it isn't always so, but Delta, like all carriers, competes on a market to market basis. So from LA to Ft. Lauderdale, they will offer seats at or less than the other carriers.
