Did you guys know that some passengers family got paid $3,500 for there loss. I think the average was $5,000. I think that is way to low. I think they made money on that with all the insurance but the impact on the consumer must have given them a loss.

Most airline liability on international flights is limited by the Warsaw convention. It is all that small writeing that is on the back of you ticket that you don't read. I belive the maximum liability is $75,000. There was a little bit of a stink about this a couple of years ago after the TWA 800 crash. So a couple of airlines volunteered to exempt themselves from this limit. Swissair and Delta where two of the lines. Now both are seeing hundred million dollar plus lawsuits over the Nova Scotia crash.
