I am from the UK and currently planning a round-the-world tour, which has been booked for over 6 months - with flights booked for every leg except the US leg as much as 18 months in advance. For some bizarre reason, SouthWest is the only airline I have come accross in the world with such a bizarre system for loading its flights and schedules. Low cost airlines in the UK such as EasyJet, Australia's Virgin Blue, and Asia's Air Asia have much better systems allowing customers to book as much as 12 months in advance. Yes, Southwest began the low-cost model in Europe, but for gods sake - why is Europe now suddenly getting their booking systems so much more advanced.
Whilst I am only waiting one flight from LAS to LAX to become available in June, there is clearly a huge amount of customers who will be forced to go elsewhere. I have got bored of waiting and I have to admit based on your prices for May, Delta and US Airways are only about 5$ more then u guys....looks like im off to US Airways.
