Is Southwest padding Schedules for OTP?

Looking at April's D0 and A14 stats, I noticed the following deference between the D0 and the A14.
AA +12%, DL +16%, UA +17% SW + 25%

So it would appear that Southwest is adding some serious cushion to their schedules. Are there other factors that could account for this that I am missing?
 
Maybe they haven't added "serious cushion" to their schedules. Maybe they just decided to be seriously realistic about how long it takes to turn an airplane in certain airports.

This would not show turn times. This would only show the flight times. They are gaining 25 point in A14 after taking off.
