Southwest announced June 13 that they have removed the Boeing 737 MAX 8 (Southwest had 34 of them) from the flight schedule through September 2, 2019.
So you should be able to check your flights through that date, and none of them should be scheduled to fly on a MAX 8.
Southwest says you will be notified soon if a flight you’ve booked is affected. It sounds like they are going to make alternate flight bookings for you. If you don’t like the changes, you can rebook with no fees or fare differences between the same city pairs or request a refund.
“While the vast majority of our Customers’ itineraries have remained unaffected, flight schedule changes have inconvenienced some of our valued Customers, and, for that, I offer my sincerest apologies,” Nealon said in April.
