Any time I am booking I agree to the Conditions Of Carriage, without reading its contents. I once tried starting to read the conditions, only to find that my booking session ended due to the fact that I was reading the conditions of carriage. Of course then the prices increased on the next search.
My question is actually two-fold. Are the conditions of carriage standard among different airlines? How can you get to grasp to full extend of these conditions within a relatively short time frame (being the usual web session of an online booking)?
