Have your Companion Pass through the end of next year?
Today, August 15th, Southwest released their schedule through March 6th, 2020. So if you have any travel plans in the next few months, get to booking! Southwest always releases their flights in batches, and you can always check the next release date here. Currently, the next release date is scheduled for September 26th, when Southwest will extend their schedule to April 13th, 2020.
In my experience, it’s best to book Southwest tickets as soon as humanly possible, and then monitor their prices for a potential price drop refund until the day of your trip. Points bookings are even more flexible!
