Default Does anyone know what time of day Southwest releases their flights?

I am wondering what time of the day does Southwest release their flight schedules? Right now it says on the Website it will be June 15, use to be June 10!!!! I wonder if they do it at midnight? or 8am? Just wondering if anyone knows? Want to try to get airline right away, the cheapest they have for Thanksgiving weekend!

Thanks in advance!

From an article on Smartertravel.com:

Bill Owen, Southwest's lead schedule planner, offers some more insight into the airline's process on release dates: " … We publish our schedule and allow bookings only up to about 180 days in advance … After we publish, we let the clock tick down " … until we have about 120 days worth of inventory left to sell, at which point we publish another block of schedules and push the inventory back up to about 180 days. On rare occasions … the inventory can drop as low as 90 days, and on even rarer occasions we'll have more than 180 days available." Owen also noted that new schedules are generally released at 10 a.m. CT on Thursdays.

That would support the June 10th date, but the article is from 2008 so maybe they've changed their ways.
