The Supreme Court heard oral argument in the case of Northwest v. Ginsberg, on whether airlines need any reason to drop customers from their frequent flyer programs. Northwest Airlines stripped Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg of his WorldPerks membership because, according to the airline, he abused the program. At issue was whether Rabbi Ginsberg had a right under state law to bring his case or whether it is preempted by the the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, which prohibits parties from blaming similar state claims against airlines relating to price, route, or service of the carrier.

On April 2, 2014, the court held that the federal rules which deregulated the airline industry prevent Mr. Ginsberg from bringing that lawsuit. close
