September timetable

Explorer C

How firm is the schedule for September 2024?  Is it firm enough that I can make a non-refundable car and hotel reservations based on it, or are there likely to be significant changes?

I personally would not ever make a non-refundable car or hotel as there are changes all the time.  It could even be weather or illness, unrelated to SW schedule.  That being said, SW does change their schedule.  I think (but not sure) that when you receive an email that says "Your MM/DD trip to CITY, ST is all set" is when you can be comfortable they have set their schedule.  I received this email for a 7/22 flight on 6/22 so about 1 month in advance.

Prepare for disappointment when you buy any thing or service that is non-refundable, regardless of Southwest's schedule.

You are right. I agree with you.
