______________________________________________ Introduction: 

[1] The time has come to talk of many things – of a traveler’s journey to the United States of  America (USA) with the Defendant Airline – and of his lost luggage, the consequence thereof and  why the Plaintiff says he is entitled to be compensated – the nature of the contractual relationship  – and the Warsaw Convention. Those questions arise in this litigation, in which the Plaintiff claims  damages for a breach of contract against the Defendant airline.
