In cases where the Montreal Convention applies to your journey, the applicable liability limit is 1,131 Special Drawing Rights per passenger for checked and unchecked baggage. The rate of conversion of a Special Drawing Right as defined by the International Monetary Fund fluctuates.
This will not apply to our liability for damage to your baggage if you can prove that the damage resulted from an act or omission by us or our agents carried out either (i) with an intention to cause damage; or recklessly and with knowledge that the damage would likely result, and you prove that our employees or agents responsible for the act or omission were acting with the scope of their employment.
