BAGGAGE: The air carrier allows each passenger to bring on the flight 1 piece of checked luggage with a maximum weight of 23 kilograms per bag and maximum dimensions of 157 linear centimeters per bag. For DOMESTIC flights, the carrier’s liability is limited to $1,250.00 per passenger total, for checked and unchecked baggage. For INTERNATIONAL flights the air carrier’s liability is limited to the actual value of the baggage but not more than $20 per kilogram in the case of checked baggage and approximately $400.00 per passenger for unchecked baggage. Unless the actual weight is entered on the baggage check, each piece of checked baggage is presumed to weigh 23 kilograms and, accordingly, our liability is limited to $460 per piece.
AIRCRAFT: This flight will be performed by a Brussels Airlines Airbus A320 aircraft. There are 180 seats. Up to 120 seats on the aircraft can be converted to Business Class. Business Class consists of a standard seat with the corresponding middle seat blocked. For every two seats of Business Class the capacity available for sale will be reduced by three.

If your notice is received: You will receive:
- 90 or more days before departure: $ 150.00

Refunds will be made within 14 days of receipt of your notice of cancellation. Such refunds and substitutions are subject to acceptance by MEGADO.

IF WE MAKE MAJOR CHANGES PRIOR TO DEPARTURE: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL AND RECEIVE A FULL REFUND. The following are Major Changes: (1) a change in the departure or return date, unless the change results from a flight delay experienced by the air carrier. (If, however, the delay is longer than 48 hours, it will be considered a major change.) (2) a change in the origin or destination city, unless the change affects only the order in which cities named in a tour package are visited; and (3) a price increase of more than 10 percent occurring 10 or more days before departure, unless said increase is due to a fuel surcharge. In no event can we increase your price less than 10 days before departure. If a major change must be made in the program, we will notify you within 7 days after first learning of the change, but in any event at least 10 days prior to the scheduled departure. If, less than 10 days before scheduled departure, we become aware that a major change must be made, we will notify you as soon as possible. WITHIN 7 DAYS AFTER RECEIVING NOTIFICATION OF A MAJOR CHANGE, BUT IN NO EVENT LATER THAN DEPARTURE, YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A FULL REFUND WITHIN 14 DAYS AFTER CANCELING. If a major change occurs after the departure of the flight, which you are unwilling to accept, we will refund, within 14 days after your scheduled return date, that portion of your payment, which applies to the services, not accepted.
IF WE MUST CANCEL THE CHARTER: WE WILL NOTIFY YOU IN WRITING WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THE CANCELLATION, BUT IN NO EVENT LATER THAN 10 DAYS BEFORE THE SCHEDULED DEPARTURE DATE.

If the charter is canceled, we will make a full refund to you within 14 days after cancellation. The rights and remedies made available under this contract are in addition to any other rights or remedies available under applicable law. However, we offer refunds under this contract with the express understanding that the receipt of that refund by a passenger waives the additional remedies.

If the air carrier cannot obtain these rights, the flight will be canceled and a full refund will be made to you automatically.
PROOF OF IDENTITY: A passport must be shown for access to the aircraft. Passengers not having a valid passport will not be permitted to board and will forfeit all refunds.
