Millions of Southwest airlines passengers could be getting a free drink.
The airline has reached a tentative settlement over a voucher for a free alcoholic beverage. The $5 vouchers were given to business select passengers and had no expiration date. However the airline changed its policy on August 1, 2010 and canceled unused vouchers. A class action lawsuit was filed in 2011.
Under the settlement, Southwest Airlines will redeem up to 5.8-million vouchers worth about $29-million. The airline must also pay legal fees up to $7-million.
