Here we go again...

Tomorrow morning SWA opens dates through early March. I have my alarm set for 6am Any body else gonna be doing the mad scramble like me?!?! Last time they opened dates I had been hit a few hours earlier with food poisoning. At least this time I won't be sitting at my computer in tears because of the pain. Good luck to anyone trying to book!!

As of the current time (0642 Eastern) the Southwest site in my laptop still says dates are open through January 6. But I completed my purchase via the full SWA site on my iPhone at 0628!!!

I entered my flight date by hand, rather than using their calendar. But - I tried that on the laptop to see if it worked there, and it didn’t.

I hope this helps you.

First, let me say THANK YOU. I am at a loss for words about how screwed up that is! I have been sitting here since 6:10 est refreshing like a banchee. I just saw your post and when I manually entered dates on my desktop BAM there were the flights. As of now, 7:21, they're still showing unavailable if using their calendar. The app wouldn't let me load my own dates but the desktop did. A million thanks. I fly SWA multiple times a year and almost always during school breaks so I book on release day. Today and the last release day last month were both the weirdest situations with what seemed like delayed postings. Usually they're posted about 6:30am
I got our flights, not ideal times but SWA has cut back so much on non-stops from my regional airport. Only 2 NS flights from LI to FLL over school breaks?? And only 2 to MCO pretty much anytime. It's insanity.
Edited to add: I've already looked at my confirmation 4x to make sure it's real, lol. Feel like I'm missing something since they're still showing until 1/6 but my purchase is loaded on my Upcoming Trips so I'm good!!

Congratulations to all of you...that is ridiculous. These tech problems that we see with these big companies (Disney especially) I feel is unacceptable yet we are seemingly stuck with it.
