Fragile Items

Fragile items will be accepted if they are appropriately packaged in an original factory-sealed carton, cardboard mailing tube, or container or case designed for shipping such items or packed with protective internal material. However, fragile items without appropriate packaging may be accepted upon the execution of a release which relieves known shipper of liability for loss or damage of contents or delay in delivery resulting in damage or loss of checked baggage. Such loss or damage must result solely from the unsuitability of such items as checked baggage and/or the inadequacy of their packaging, and not from known shipper’s failure to exercise the ordinary standard of care.

The classes of items listed below are deemed to be fragile or perishable or otherwise unsuitable as checked baggage and are subject to the conditions of acceptance set forth in paragraphs 1) and 2) above.
