Chicago Man Suing Southwest Airlines Over Drink Coupons, Preposterous

November 17, 2011

(Reuters) – Southwest Airlines Co was sued by an Illinois man over the discount carrier’s decision to stop honoring coupons for free alcoholic drinks, which it had given to select travelers and which lacked expiration dates. The plaintiff Adam Levitt said Southwest had for years awarded customers like him, who bought tickets through its premium-priced “Business Select” program, hundreds of thousands of coupons for the drinks, which would otherwise cost $5 each. But on August 1, 2010, Southwest changed its policy, and said Business Select passengers may use their coupons only on the day of travel printed on them. Some other passengers were given more time.

Levitt, who lives in the Chicago area, said the policy change amounted to a breach of contract. He attached to his complaint copies of 45 coupons for free drinks, which he said he had accumulated and which the change left worthless.

Levitt’s noted attorney stated that Southwest Airlines policy was  totally inappropriate. It’s lewd, lascivious , salacious, outrageous, egregious, preposterous and Supercilious!   His attorney is currently on retainer for  20 free drinks..
