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.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
