Supreme Court win for Delta

Northwest Airlines, now Delta Air Lines, has won a supreme court case brought by passenger Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg, who claimed that the airline had broken its contract when it revoked his Platinum Elite frequent flyer membership after he was found to be abusing it. Northwest argued that it was justified in cutting off Ginsberg from its Platinum Elite program since he lodged 24 complaints in eight months. Northwest has granted him compensation totaling $1,925 in travel credit and 78,500 bonus miles.

In court held that the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 protects air carriers against such suits.

The frequent flier contract said the airline could revoke his membership any time, for any reason.
