    Man says Southwest Airlines owes him 45 drinks.

    A Chicago area man claims Southwest Airlines owes him 45 free drinks.

    Adam Levitt has filed a federal lawsuit against the discount carrier over what he calls a breach of contract.

    Levitt says for years he booked flights for the Business Select class, which gave travelers drink coupons worth $5 with no expiration date. But the lawsuit claims Southwest changed its policy last year saying Business Select travelers could only use coupons on the day of travel printed on them.

    Levitt said his coupons are now worthless and his lawsuit includes copies of each of the 45 free drink coupons he claims he's owed.

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

    A spokeswoman for Dallas-based Southwest didn't immediately have a comment Thursday.
