Yes, but Southwest doesn't fly long routes.  And they do have very  
low prices.  As I said in my post, you certainly can trade price for comfort.  But  
you won't attract those business travellers airlines would so dearly like to see.

Not if you go by airframes sold.  757 production is up to about 520,  
while 767 production is in the 480 range.  I think undelivered orders  
are in about the same ratio, but with all the order reshuffling going  
on that's hard to keep track of.
