The major United States and foreign airlines have agreed to absolute liability for provable damages up to $75,000 for injury or death of passengers on Warsaw Convention flights to, from, or stopping in, the United States. For the vast majority of Americans on international flights, the Agreement disposes of the Convention's liability limit of $8,300.3 And the Lisi opinion of the Second Circuit may make the Convention a dead letter for accidents occurring before the Agreement.
