seatguru type website for southwest?

Does anyone know of a seatguru.com type website that includes southwest planes? Some of the airlines on seatguru list the same boeing planes that southwest uses ... are the configurations the same? Taking our first southwest flight soon and if we get that A pass we want to pick the right seats! Thanks!

I had a flight crew on SWA sing one time. "Eeeny meeny miney moe, pick a seat and then we'll go." There's no "better" or worse seats, especially on their newer planes without the lounges.

Southwest currently operates 388 Boeing 737 jets (as of December 31, 2003).

TYPE NUMBER SEATS
737-200 23 122
737-300 194 137
737-500 25 122
737-700* 146 137

The Company's fleet has an average age of about 9.5 years.
The average aircraft trip length is 558 miles with an average duration of about one and one-half hours for 2003.
Southwest aircraft fly an average of about 7 flights per day, or about 11 hours per day.
Southwest was the launch customer for the Boeing 737-700 in 1997. Southwest was also a launch customer for the Boeing 737-500 and -300 series aircraft.
Southwest is updating its traditional gold, red and orange paint scheme by adding canyon blue. All new aircraft will have the updated colors and interior. Existing aircraft will be retrofitted over time.
*Performance-enhancing Blended Winglets are being installed on the current and future fleet of 737-700s.

Unfortunately, some flights are not that short, like BWI-LAX or SEA-BNA. You might want to ask the gate agent how full the flight is. If it's totally full, then grab the first window or aisle you can see. If it's quite empty, try something near the rear so you may get all 3 seats to yourself.
