Is there a method to set up an alerts when seats open up on previously full flights?

Unfortunately I am not aware of a way to set up an alert for hey seats are now available for a flight 


the best advice I can give is to check daily maybe once in the morning and once at night as inventory can change at anytime and if it's a last minute flight check close to check in time and maybe every few hours as some people will wait to cancel until check in time 


if you want to make sure you have a seat seat on a flight I would book another SW flight and if seats do become available later you can change for free (fare difference may apply) 


hope this helps
