2018 flight schedule

New Arrival

Can anyone tell me when the schedule will be out for travel for the month of January?  I am looking for January 7-14 for travel to Mexico.  I did see somewhere that May 18th they were loading a new schedule but when is the next upload after that?  I don't think the May 18th date will unlock the days I am needing.

They are currently accepting air reservations through November 3, 2017. On May 18, 2017 they will open their schedule for sale through
January 7, 2018. This date is subject to change! Please check back frequently.  For the rest of Jan would come out June/July

Southwest has a shorter booking window than just about any other airline; it's part of how they do business.  They always post the prospective date for new booking windows.  Usually they start selling seats through about New Years in mid-May.  I think the booking window for January-February usually opens August-ish?  Somebody else probably remembers...
