SW usually only schedules about 90 days in advance, but I'm not sure if that's always true. They do have some really great deals (they just had a 72-hour special which ended on 10/29, but with limited travel windows. Got a great deal BHM - PDX r/t for $174.00) You can call SWA at 1-800-435-9792, or get on their website. They have a call-back system, so you don't have to wait on hold. Great deals, but you have to be vigilant and monitor. Last Spring, I was on-line trying to book another special, and they increased the return date by two weeks while I was on-line.
