Southwest how far ahead can you book

I can't seem to figure out how far ahead you can book... trying to book DEN - TPA... for a specific week late oct. coming back early Nov.

Southwest is $150 cheaper than UA.. but I have a couple of $75 UA vouchers, but they expire in next few weeks...

But Southwest will only let me book through Oct. 30th... I need to come back Nov. 1st or 2nd...

How does Southwest determine how far out you can book? Will I be able to book Early Nov. in the next few weeks?

May extend sometime in July from past history. There is no official timeline when they do these extensions, but you can see the past history at

WN has a shorter schedule horizon than other carriers. The "why" is explained here and here.

The next proposed schedule extension will be announced here, but there is nothing there yet concerning early November.
