Carrier is under no obligation to ascertain that the bearer of the baggage check and baggage (claim) tag is entitled to delivery of the baggage and carrier is not liable for any loss, damage or expense arising out of or in connection with such delivery of the baggage. Except as otherwise provided in subparagraph (3) below, deliver will be made at the destination shown in the baggage check.

    3. At the request of the bearer of the baggage check and baggage (claim) tag(s), checked baggage will be delivered at the place of departure or an intermediate stopping place upon the same condition provided for in subparagraph (1) above, unless precluded by government regulations or unless time and circumstances do not permit. In delivering baggage at the place of departure or at any intermediate stopping place, carrier shall be under no obligation to refund any charges paid.

Such baggage will be accepted only upon execution of a release, supplied by the carrier, which relieves the carrier from liability of any delivery charges resulting from failure of baggage to arrive on the flight on which the passenger traveled unless the carrier has failed to exercise ordinary standards of care in the carriage and delivery of the baggage.
