The Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 (49 USC 41713) preempted plaintiff’s tort claims arising from defendant’s decision not to use plaintiff’s software that offered certain in flight deals to airline passengers.  Refusing to follow the Ninth Circuit’s minority view (Charas v. Trans World Airlines, Inc. (9th Cir. 1998) 160 F.3d 1259), this decision holds that in flight deals are part of the “service” that an airline provides.  Since plaintiff’s tort claims referred to defendant’s in flight services, the ADA preempted them.  Swiftair’s breach of contract claims was not preempted, but the jury found against it, and Swiftair failed to show that it presented compelling evidence of damage causation requiring a verdict in its favor.
