Due to different political, economic and historical situations, the liability systems of the air carrier in Mainland China and Taiwan have similarities as well as differences. There exist some problems in the relative regulations of flight delay. The essence of flight delay and the liability limitation are not clear. There is no legislation on the insurance of flight delay. In Mainland China, the scope of the exemption excuse is too large to protect the benefit of passengers and the collateral duty is not explicit in the regulations. This paper gives suggestions on the standard of flight delay, liability limitation of the air carrier and insurance on flight delay of Mainland China and Taiwan. It is suggested that the exemption excuses should be reduced and the collateral duty of air carrier be elaborated in Mainland China.

Key words: flight delay, liability limitation, exemption excuses, insurance on flight delay, collateral duty
