Hello

 

On May 31, 2018 southwest will open the schedule for sale through January 6, 2019. This date is subject to change! Please check back frequently.

 

so what about February flights? It will probably be a month or 2 later as schedules are released every couple months however we wont know the approximate date until this next schedule is released on May 31st 

 

hope this helps

A new schedule comes out every 12 weeks, on May 31 the schedule should go out 8 weeks from Jan 6th.

I'm not sure where you got this information, but it's no longer true (if it ever was).

 

Southwest has been recently making -- and will make in upcoming months -- significant schedule changes, not the least of which will be adding service to Hawaii (at some yet-undetermined point). This has resulted in schedule releases that cover smaller periods then they did previously, and the occasional postponement in an announced release date. Releases are sporadic and do not follow any set timetable.

 

Here's a list of historical schedule open dates (does not include dates that were scheduled but postponed) and the period they covered (when released, if changed from a previous announcement.)

Now that the schedule has been released through January 6, 2019, any idea of when the remainder of January will open up?
