The schedule typically opens about 8 months in advance -- so for 2022 - April, 2021

I was talking about 2021.  So for November 2021, we should see it March 2021 it sounds.

@leavittjk This would have some truth.  SWA just recently put out their updated schedule within the last month, (I believe)   When they update they never update for more than several months, (really not sure the exact number) but never for an entire year.  But with the return of the MAX I'm hoping an updated schedule will be presented.

@leavittjk here is actual information I found that is definitive, not my speculation.  

 

While most airlines allow you to book flights up to 11 months in advance of your travels, Southwest Airlines does it a bit differently. They release their fares in batches, going as far out as about seven months.Dec 10, 2020
