Any carrier used shall not be responsible or liable for any act, omission, or occurrence during the time passengers are not on board its airplanes. All tours, services, and transportation (other than air) are furnished by contractors that are independent and that do not act for or on behalf of the carrier, nor are servants of the same, and neither do they have any business relationship, as joint ventures or otherwise.

Further, the carrier shall not be responsible or liable in any way for the accuracy of any representations of the tour operator and its agents on tours or tour services other than those contained in the tour brochures or tour itineraries. Carrier liability for passenger's baggage is clearly stated on the passenger contract included on all tickets or can be found on file for inspection at the offices of the carrier.

Overbooking of Flights

personal limo driverAirline 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.

Some airlines do not apply these consumer protections to travel from some foreign countries, although other consumer protections may be available. Check with the airline.
