Advice To International Passengers On Limitation Of Liability
Passengers on a journey involving an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of origin are advised that the provisions of a treaty known as the Warsaw Convention may be applicable to the entire journey, including any portion entirely within the country of origin or destination . For such passengers on a journey to, from, or with an agreed stopping place in the United States of America, the Convention and special contracts of carriage embodied in applicable tariffs provide that the liability of certain carriers, parties to such special contracts, for death of or personal injury to passengers is limited in most cases to proven damages not to exceed U.S. $75,000 per passenger, and that this liability up to such limit shall not depend on negligence on the part of the carrier. The limit of liability of U.S $75,000 above is inclusive of legal fees and costs except that in case of a claim brought in a state where provision is made for separate award of legal fees and costs, the limit shall be the sum of U.S. $58,000 exclusive of legal fees and costs. For such passengers travelling by a carrier not a party to such special contracts or on a journey not to, from, or having an agreed stopping place in the United States of America, liability of the carrier for death or personal injury to passengers is limited in most cases to approximately U.S. $10,000 or U.S. $20,000. The names of carriers, parties to such special contracts, are available at all ticket offices of such carriers and may be examined on request. Additional protection can usually be obtained by purchasing insurance from a private company. Such insurance is not affected by any limitation of the carrier’s liability under the Warsaw Convention or such special contracts of carriage. For further information please consult your airline or insurance company representative.
Notice of Baggage Liability Limitations
Liability for loss, delay, or damage to baggage is limited unless a higher value is declared in advance and additional charges are paid. For most international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys) the liability limit is approximately $9.07 per pound for checked baggage and $400 per passenger for unchecked baggage. For travel wholly between U.S. points, federal rules require any limit on an airline’s baggage liability to be at least $3,000 per passenger. Excess valuation may be declared on certain types of articles. Some carriers assume no liability for fragile, valuable or perishable articles. Further information may be obtained from the carrier. CARRIER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE CARRIAGE TO ANY PERSON WHO HAS ACQUIRED A TICKET IN VIOLATION OF APPLICABLE LAW OR CARRIER’S TARIFFS, RULES OR REGULATIONS. SUBJECT TO TARIFF REGULATIONS
Notice of Incorporated Terms of Contract
Air transportation, whether it is domestic or international (including domestic portions of international journeys), is subject to the individual terms of the transporting air carriers, which are herein incorporated by reference and made part of the contract of carriage. Other carriers on which you may be ticketed may have different conditions of carriage. International air transportation, including the carriers’ liability may also be governed by applicable tariffs on file with the U.S. and other governments and by the Warsaw Convention, as amended, or its successor. Incorporated terms may include, but are not restricted to:
Rules and limits on liability for personal injury or death.
Rules and limits on liability for baggage, including fragile or perishable goods, and availability of excess valuation charge.
Claims restrictions, including time periods in which passengers must file a claim or bring an action against the air carrier.
Rights of the air carrier to change terms of the contract.
Rules on reconfirmation of reservations, check-in times, and refusal to carry.
Rights of the air carrier and limits on liability for delay or failure to perform service, including schedule changes, substitution of alternate air carriers or aircraft and rerouting.
You can obtain additional information on items 1 through 6 above at any U.S. location where the transporting air carrier’s tickets are sold. You have the right to inspect the full text of each transporting air carrier’s terms at its airport and city ticket offices. You also have the right, upon request, to receive free of charge the full text of the applicable terms incorporated by reference from each of the transporting air carriers. Information on ordering the full text of each air carrier’s terms is available at any U.S. location where the air carrier’s tickets are sold.
Notice – Overbooking of Flights
Airline flights may be overbooked, and there is a slight chance that a seat will not be available on a flight for which a person has a confirmed reservation. If the flight is overbooked, no one will be denied a seat until airline personnel first ask for volunteers willing to give up their reservation in exchange for a payment of the airline’s choosing. If there are not enough volunteers the airline will deny boarding to other persons in accordance with its particular boarding priority. With few exceptions persons denied boarding involuntarily are entitled to compensation. The complete rules for the payment of compensation and each airline’s boarding priorities are available at all airport ticket counters and boarding locations. Someairlines do not apply these consumer protections to travel from some foreign countries, although other consumer protections may be available. Check with the airline or your travel agent.
Some international carriers require a reconfirmation of your reservations. Contact the transporting air carrier for the applicable requirements.
Conditions of Contract
As used in this contract ’ticket’ means this passenger ticket and baggage check, of which these conditions and the notices from part, ‘carriage’ is equivalent to ‘transportation’, ‘carrier’ means all air carriers that carry or undertake to carry the passenger of his baggage hereunder or perform any other service incidental to such air carriage. “WARSAW CONVENTION” means the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, signed at Warsaw, 12th October 1929, or that Convention as amended at The Hague, 28th September 1955, whichever may be applicable.

What You Should Know About The Possibility of Airline Bankruptcy
Airline bankruptcies may continue to occur. You should know how they might affect you.
If an airline declares bankruptcy, it is not obligated to carry you or to refund tickets issued before the bankruptcy.
Travel agents are not allowed to refund tickets on airlines which have declared bankruptcy. Money given to a travel agent immediately becomes the property of the airlines, and we are required by law to comply with the airlines’ orders.
If an airline declares bankruptcy, it might continue service, limit service, or stop completely. Other airlines might accept passengers under limited circumstances or may refuse to accept any passengers from the defaulted carrier.
Meanwhile there are excellent travel insurance plans available for passengers to protect themselves in case of airline bankruptcies. Some credit card companies provide coverage in cases where your flight does not operate. Check with your credit card company.
This agency and its agents have endeavored to secure the lowest possible fare, suitable for your travel requirements, based on space available at the time of booking, accessible sources of information and knowledge of agents involved.
This agency cannot guarantee, in view of the deregulation of airline fares, that the fare, indicated on ticket, will be the lowest possible fare at departure date. Please contact this agency before departure if you wish to recheck any newly introduced fare that may correspond with you specific travel requirements.
PLEASE NOTE that retention of tickets, reservations or bookings after issuance shall constitute acceptance of all the provisions in the conditions listed hereto, as well as those terms and conditions set forth in the announcements and circulars of the tour/package, cruise or service.
