However, in practice, it is difficult to imagine, unless an airline has sufficient resources (for example. B of ground support personnel and equipment) who are ready to follow in the footsteps of a well-established operator. Most airlines are thinner and thinner. It will be interesting to see how claims are handled and whether internal flight processes are the result of tracking and tracking cargo claims. Improvements can be made when airlines use more detailed documentation requirements for cargo shipments and handling of irregularities (AnnexS A 5.3.1 and 5.7). The amended clause 7.3 and the new clause 7.4 give the handler the right to suspend services if the airline does not require an immediate advance or cash payment in the event of insolvency. Given the historical liquidity problems faced by some airlines, it is perhaps surprising that these clauses have not yet been included in the SGHA. This does not mean that the resolution of the companies will be nothing but unsecured creditors for unpaid bills. Under current SGHA legislation, cash advances or advances may violate applicable local insolvency legislation. Within SGHA 2013, there was some confusion about the deadline for obtaining damages from a carrier. The confusion was caused by the following sentence: „Any claim must be filed within the time frame set out in section 31.2 of the 1999 Montreal Convention.“ Section 31.2 sets the deadlines for filing claims of persons authorized for delivery for damaged and late shipments, 14 and 21 days respectively. A carrier`s claims against a ground carrier are not addressed. SGHA 2018 has highlighted broader audit rights under Clause 5.9 to allow other carriers within an IATA audit pool to review the handling company in favour of this pool.
Currently, there are 37 airlines within the ISAGO Audit Pool, which can benefit from joint audit reports for the same handler at a given airport. It goes without saying that airlines have their own ground operating manuals, other service provider guidelines, codes of conduct, approach policies, customer service (e.g.B. customer charter), style and even brand.
