Southwest Extends Flight Calendar – Early Summer Now Bookable
Southwest Airlines releases flight schedules only 6-8 months in advance. Even though it makes it annoying for those who try to plan well ahead, it is always a little exciting when they finally extend the calendar. Especially when a heavy travel time frame is released like a holiday or spring break. Now Southwest has extended out the calendar to June 8th, 2019. That means that you can now book travel for early summer.
The great thing about Southwest is that you can cancel award flights without any penalty. That automatically makes their frequent flyer program one of the best in the business. Even if you can’t stand their boarding procedure you book them and lock in the rate as a safety flight in case something else doesn’t open up. Since you can cancel at any time there is no harm in playing it safe.
