- If the company fails to comply with the determinations, the passenger must go and file a complaint directly to the Administrator;

- If the passenger is in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Brasilia, he can go to the Special Courts which operate at the airports of these cities.

According to reconciling the Court of Justice of the Federal District and Territories, Soraia Couto, only after the airline company makes tracking and case is ultimately lost is considered that there will be compensation.

- The sector of compensation the airline will offer compensation to the passenger. But this compensation is related to the weight of baggage, and not to it content.
