Default SWA Grounds 130 737s...

Over a 75# weight discrepancy?

That seems awfully conservative and like, unnecessary, it's not a BE-1900.

Must be the optics associated with "737" these days.

In smaller airplanes. At least some majors have an allowance for slop, limited last minute bags and pax seat changes don't necessitate a revised W&B.

Although I guess if the 75# was at the very nose or tail, it would have more lever-arm and therefore more significance.
