In view of the complex nature of this trip, the type of aircraft and/or one or several of the stopovers could be subject to modification, or even replacement, such a modification or replacement being justified to the organiser by an outside event which was unknown at the time of the brochure going to press (30th November 2015, in particular with regards to hotels and/or with regards to landing or take off authorisations to /from a planned airport).
