Where a passenger's journey involves an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure, either the Warsaw Convention and the Hague Protocol, their amendments, and any special contracts of carriage embodied in applicable tariffs that waive Warsaw/Hague limits, or the Montreal Convention may apply to the entire journey including the portion within the countries of departure or destination and, in some cases, may limit the liability of the carrier for death or personal injury, delay, and for loss of or damage to baggage.
The Montreal Convention, where applicable, does not impose any special contracts voluntarily entered into by many carriers, including JetBlue, waive the Warsaw/Hague limitations for compensatory damages arising out of personal injury or wrongful death caused by an accident, as defined by the applicable treaty.
The names of carriers party to the special contracts are available at all ticket offices of such carriers and may be examined upon request.
