Uh 3 questions. 1. Why would the bank fly CASH!!!! out of a country. 2. I thought you can't bring CASH that much into a country. 3. Does Montreal Convention kicks in and limits CX for just 1xxx SDR Bonus question. Label a bag with "G4S" and no armor truck or armed guards around is like saying "Please steal me"

Maybe they just needed to cover the loss of the ZRH-BKK error fare.
