ADVICE TO INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS ON LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Passengers on a journey involving an ultimate destination or a 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
Royal Brunei Airlines and certain other 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 US$75,000 per passenger, and that this liability up to such limit shall not depend on
negligence on the part of the carrier. For such passengers traveling by a carrier not a party
to such special contracts or on a journey not to, from or having and 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 US$10,000 or US$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.
Note: The limit of liability of US$75,000 above is inclusive of legal fees and costs except that in the 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 US$58,000 exclusive of legal fees and costs.

For most international travel (including domestic portions of international journeys) the liability limit is approximately US$9.07 per pound (US$20.00 per kilo) for checked baggage and US$400.00 per passenger unchecked baggage. For travel wholly between U.S. points, Federal rules require any limit on an airline’s baggage liability to be at least US$1,250.00 per passenger.
