Passengers on board Carrier's aircraft, whether on arrival at destination or an agreed stopping place, or when a flight is subject to delay or cancellation must disembark from the aircraft when required to do so by Carrier.     Carrier may take any reasonable measures to remove a passenger who refuses to disembark when required to do so by  Carrier and any such passenger shall on demand reimburse to Carrier any costs, losses or expenses incurred by Carrier as a consequence of such refusal to disembark.

If, for the reasons herein above enumerated, the Carrier has, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion, refused to carry a passenger, or removed such a passenger en route, then the Carrier may cancel the remaining unused portion of the ticket and the passenger will not be entitled to further carriage.  The Carrier will not be liable for any consequential loss or damage alleged due to any such refusal to carry or removal en route.
