Not only that, even the old 200s cruise faster than the A320s. They were designed at a time when speed was a bigger issue than it is today. I don't know how the fuel economy of the 737 NGs stack up to the A320s, but with their newer wings and powerplants, I would imagine they're pretty competitive.
