Man Sues American Airlines For Revoking Lifetime Pass

A man who paid nearly $400,000 in the late 80s for two lifetime passes from American Airlines is now suing the company, claiming they illegally revoked the passes after a supposed rule violation. The passes allowed him and a companion to travel anywhere they wanted in first class for the rest of his life, but AA canceled them after claiming he made “‘speculative reservations’ for companions.”

We don’t know what fine print that violates, exactly, because we haven’t seen the pass agreement. But put your wallet away—AA doesn’t sell lifetime passes anymore.
