Chapter Summary

This chapter relates to the IATA challenge to European Council Regulation (EC) No. 2027/97 of 9 October 1997 on Air Carrier Liability in the Event of Accidents respecting the carriage of passengers and their baggage which purported to displace the Warsaw Convention, Hague Protocol Regime for European Community carriers and thus attempted to supersede and thereby undermined preceding binding international treaty law. John Balfour was an integral part indeed a leading member of the IATA team that developed, fashioned and structured the legal argumentation presented to Mr. Justice Jowitt in the English High Court of Justice in November 1998. Interestingly, as Head of the IATA Delegation, the John Balfour met with the Head of the Delegation of the European Union at the Montreal Diplomatic Conference and it was agreed that the new Convention about to be adopted to replace the Warsaw Regime would resolve the EC Regulation dispute definitively.
