Historical and Upcoming SWA Release Dates

I've posted this before, but the thread seems to have disappeared (at least search isn't finding it), so I'll just repost instead of updating. These don't prove anything (except that SWA's approach has evolved over time), but can be useful in anticipating when future dates may be released.

Thanks. I printed that out. I see the only thing consistent is that every other year they appear to have more release dates than the year before (ie 5 x in 2007, 5 x in 2009, 7 x in 2008, 6 x in 2010). Odd number years seem to have fewer releases so this year looks like it might be on track to be one of the fewer number years. But hopefully whenever the NEXT release date IS it should include all of spring break so that it won't be split into 2 different releases. I will mark July 26 on my calendar to check for the NEXT date!

Usually very early, as in sometime around 6 a.m. ET, but they are not entirely consistent.

August is a month that frequently has been split between two release dates.You could see the first two weeks as early as November and then the rest in January/February based on recent releases.
