7.4.1? To ensure that the Consigned Cargo is carried in time, it is necessary that the Shipper should book the flight and the date for carriage of the Cargo. If the flight and the date or the time limit for carriage are agreed and indicated on the AWB, we shall carry the Cargo as agreed provided that no such special circumstances occur as governmental acts or Force Majeure. If no agreement has been established, the Cargo shall be arranged for carriage in accordance with the sequence of the acceptance of the Consigned Cargo within a reasonable time limit.

When necessary, we are entitled to continue any flight without any or part of the Cargo.

7.5.2 If as a result of such priority arrangement mentioned in Article 7.5.1, the Consigned Cargo is not carried or not carried on the agreed flight and date, or part of the Cargo needs to be unloaded from the flight, we will make reasonable arrangements for the carriage of the Cargo not carried in a timely manner for the interest of the Shipper. We will not be liable for any delay of the Consigned Cargo due to the priority arrangement after all possible measures have been taken or no measures are able to be taken.

7.5.3 To avoid any damage or danger, either in the course of the carriage, we may, subject to the approval of the customs authorities, upon giving notice to the Shipper or the Consignee, hold the Cargo in the warehouse or any other available places, at the expense of the Shipper or the Consignee. We may also deliver the Cargo to another Carrier for onward carriage to the destination.
