It appears that the Republic of Korea is not a member of the Montreal Convention, a treaty which provides recourse to international air travelers. However Korea is a party to the Warsaw Convention, the predecessor to the Montreal Convention. The Warsaw Convention also creates a scheme of liability for injured passengers. However the Montreal Convention contains text limiting the amount of money that may be recovered in the event of personal injury. Notably those passengers whose cases fall under the Warsaw Convention must sue within two years of the date of injury.
