A Chicago-area man filed a lawsuit this week, claiming Southwest Airlines owes him 45 free alcoholic drinks.

Adam Levitt says he's booked numerous flights for the Business Select class, which gave travelers drink coupons worth $5 each.

The coupons have no expiration date, but Southwest recently changed its policy so that they have to be used on the day of travel.

Levitt claims that's a breach of contract and filed a federal lawsuit against the carrier.

Southwest says it's reviewing the claim.

The lawsuit seeks class-action status for Southwest customers nationwide who have unredeemed drink coupons.
