Southwest end of August???

Does anyone know when Southwest will open their flights for end of August, right now it is only bookable until the 9th.

I found Airtran for my dates for $999 for five people but I am not crazy about the times and prefer Southwest cancellation policy. Can't decide whether to book Airtran or wait for Southwest to open?

Thank you! I will definitely wait. Do I have to wait until the morning, or do you think I can see the dates at midnight?

It's open now, at 6:13, only goes up to Sept. 27th, which doesn't really seem very far. Oh well.

I am trying to book my return flight from Orlando to Manchester, NH on August 21st and keep getting the message:
"Published scheduled service between (Orlando - MCO) and (Manchester - MHT) will be discontinued on 08/09/2013. Please select an alternate date or choose another origination/destination. Please visit the Southwest Airlines interactive route map for alternate choices."
What is going on

I am getting the same error message. I tried two different departing airports and three different arrival airports and got same message. Must be a problem on their end. UGGGGG!!!

Fares aren't showing up but the routes should be there. Go to search schedule and you can see if your route is still there.

Yes, getting the same error from Albany to MCO. I also tried big airports...Boston to lax, same problem.
So, deep breath! They're not really discontinuing! It's a glitch error while they upload the fares!

Oh thank goodness!!!

I just came in here to post a "OH NO!!!!!!" post because I am getting the same message from Buffalo to Orlando.
I really like Southwest and was going to have a tantrum if they didn't serve MCO anymore

I guess we wait. I am really hoping rates are better than Jetblue or it's Airtran for us.
