Southwest Airlines is being fined $200,000 for advertising a false fare sale.

The U.S. Department of Transportation says that in TV ads last October the airline promised flights from Atlanta to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles for $59, but didn't make any seats available at that price.

The government says Southwest's ads were deceptive and violated rules on advertising of airline fares.
