Article 2: Applicability
a) These General Conditions of Carriage are the conditions of carriage of TAROM referred to in the ticket and, except as provided in paragraph 2 of this Article, apply to all carriage of passengers and baggage only on those flights ,or flight segments, where TAROM is designated as the carrier for that flight segment.
b) These Conditions of Carriage also apply to gratuitous and reduced fare carriage, except to the extent that carrier has provided otherwise in the relevant contracts or tickets.
2. Charter operations
If carriage is performed pursuant to a charter agreement, these Conditions of Carriage apply only to the extent they are incorporated by reference or otherwise in the charter agreement or the ticket.
3. Code Shares
On some services TAROM has arrangements with other carriers known as "Code Shares". This means that other airlines may operate a flight even though TAROM is mentioned in the ticket as "carrier". These General Conditions of Carriage also apply to such transportation.
If such arrangements apply TAROM will advise the passenger of the carrier operating the aircraft at the time he makes a reservation.
All carriage shall be subject to Carrier's General Conditions of Carriage and Carrier's tariff regulations in effect on the date of issue of the ticket or, if such date cannot be ascertained, on the date of commencement of carriage covered by the first flight coupon of the ticket.
5. Overriding law
These Conditions of Carriage are applicable unless they are inconsistent with Carrier's Tariffs or applicable law, in which event such Tariffs or laws shall prevail. If any provision of these Conditions of Carriage is invalid under any applicable law, the other provisions shall nevertheless remain valid.
6. Conditions prevail over regulations
Except as provided in these Conditions of Carriage, in the event of inconsistency between these Conditions of Carriage and any other Carrier's regulations, dealing with particular subjects, these Conditions of Carriage shall prevail.
