I seem to remember that the new flights open up at 10 a.m.  What time zone that is, I have no idea.  I realize this isn't a lot of help.  I would start checking at 10 a.m Eastern time and check every hour after that.  

 

Also, keep in mind that flight prices will likely drop so if you reserve early, keep an eye on fare prices and you will probably find a lower fare.

I read on another blog that it's 5am CST on May 18th. I'd call SW if you aren't able to get up that early to book.

New schedules load throughout the night. There is no set time. In general, the schedule is fully updated early on th following day.

I read it was 5AM Eastern time as well.  It's not because I just looked onine and called.  They told me it was 10AM central time.  I swore that last time I needed to purchase tickets on a release date that they were available at 6AM Central Time
