Contract of Carriage

When you purchase an airline ticket, what actually are you paying for? Yea you get a ride on a plane and all that, but are you aware of what else you are getting? I did not either but it's all explained here.

A Contract of Carriage is a document that describes an air carrier’s obligation to you, the passenger, in exchange for your purchase of your airline ticket. These documents can be lengthy, but the details they contain are important. Your Contract of Carriage will tell you the airline’s flight cancellation policy, and these policies vary from airline to airline. Most airlines commit to placing you on the next available flight to your destination that they operate, but they don’t state that they will place you on another airline’s flight if it departs sooner.

Gosh, perhaps that a rational person might like to know what he is buying, that's all.

Thanks for posting this. We are flying next month and this could be helpful. Hopefully, we will not need it though.
