Southwest sued for not honoring drink coupons

Illinois man claims the airline is in breach of contract

An Illinois man has filed suit against Southwest Airlines, claiming breach of contract, after the discount flyer said in August 2010 it would stop honoring coupons for free alcoholic beverages that had no expiration dates.

Adam Levitt said for years he and passengers like him bought tickets through Southwest’s higher priced Business Select program, and the airline awarded those customers with coupons for free drinks, which would otherwise cost $5 each. The coupons had no expiration date.
