This text explores questions of growing importance in international aviation law. Topics covered in depth include: mental injury; unruly passengers; spread of tuberculosis in aircraft; and the impact of turbulence on passengers. The subjects are treated internationally, traversing the field of aviation law from micro to macro level. The author also tackles the information-based problems of the future, such as problems of slot allocation and functioning of computer reservation systems on the Internet. Traditional areas of public international law are also covered in the addressing of problems related to refugees and inadmissible passengers.;The text fills a gap in the literature for a new approach to air carrier liability problems consonant with the requirements of the regime instituted by the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, signed on 28 May 1999 by the Contracting States of the International Civil Aviation Organization.
