Ballooning may involve some risks not found in everyday life. The Passenger, by acceptance of this Ticket, accepts those risks.
Plan A is to fly over the Barossa, but sometimes the weather conditions don’t allow that to happen, but we do have a Plan B, which is to fly over the Murray River. If plan B does not work, plan C is to go back home to bed. You accept the pilot’s decision on where to fly on the day.
