Air Cargo Claims in Puerto Rico

In the past, the U.S. Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) reviewed filed tariffs of domestic air cargo carriers much like the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) does today in the case of ocean freight shipments.Shippers were required to give constructive notice of the contents of tariffs, as well as the notice of claim rules for loss & damage. The CAB required that claims for loss and damage were to be filed within nine months and nine days from the date of shipment.

The U.S. Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 (Pub.L. No. 95-504, 92 Stat. 1705) brought a phased end to the CAB in 1985 as well as the notice of claim rules. Thereafter air carriers & indirect air carriers (air forwarders) have been free to mandate rules for loss & damage claims, which often differ from carrier to carrier. Because each carrier may have different rules for air cargo claims, the claimant/transportation
practitioner must be familiar with contractual rights of the performing air carrier. In short, the parties are free to contract with one another without significant government regulation.

However, international air carriage is governed by the Warsaw Convention. (Modified by Montreal Protocol 4). Although Warsaw does not require the filing of tariffs, Warsaw does force the parties to create documents and share information at defined levels. As a result, international air carriage presents significant pitfalls for those who are careless and uninformed.
