I don't know why Southwest has them, but I hear they won't have them
on the 737-700s.  I think it was some sort of certification issue.

USAir used to have them for row 1 on at least some of their DC-9s --
I flew in one of those seats in 1985.  It looks like they disappeared
when USAir added an F class section.
