Southwest drink vouchers

CREATED Aug. 29, 2013

Do you have a few drink tickets saved for your next Southwest flight?

The airline handed out the coupons, with no expiration date, for years. Then in 2010, they decided they were no longer honoring the coupons. That's when someone decided to file a lawsuit.

Now 3 years later, a U.S. District Judge has granted final approval of a settlement. Passengers will get a replacement voucher for each unredeemed drink coupon, which expires after a year.
