Under an Article 22(2) of the Montreal Convention the liability of the carrier in the case of destruction, loss, damage or delay is limited to $1,595 (1,131 SDRs) for each passenger unless the passenger has made, at the time when the checked baggage was handed over to the carrier, a special declaration of interest in delivery at destination and has paid a supplementary sum if the case so requires. In that case the carrier will be liable to pay a sum not exceeding the declared sum, unless it proves that the sum is greater than the passenger’s actual interest in delivery at destination.
