That's only true if you fly on routes with capacity. On business-heavy high-volume routes, there often simply isn't availability. Because WN made the poor decision to stop overbooking, no availability means no availability.

WN now does what other carriers do. It forces you either to plan ahead or run the risk that what you want won't be available. Except that the legacies will sell you a ticket at full F/Y and overbook by one more and run the risk of an oversell.
