(e) Insured Claims. In the case of any Claim indemnified by the Company hereunder that is covered by a policy of insurance maintained by the Company, each Indemnitee agrees to cooperate, at the Company’s expense, with the insurers in the exercise of their rights to investigate, defend or compromise such Claim.

(f) Claims Procedure. An Indemnitee shall promptly notify the Company of any Claim as to which indemnification is sought; provided that the failure to provide such prompt notice shall not release the Company from any of its obligations to indemnify hereunder, except to the extent that the Company is prejudiced by such failure or the Company’s indemnification obligations are increased as a result of such failure. Such Indemnitee shall promptly submit to the Company all additional information in such Indemnitee’s possession to substantiate such request for payment to the Company as the Company shall reasonably request. Subject to the rights of insurers under policies of insurance maintained by the Company, the Company shall have the right, at its sole cost and expense, to investigate, and the right in its sole discretion to defend or compromise, any Claim for which indemnification is sought under this Section 4.02, and, at the Company’s expense, the Indemnitee shall cooperate with all reasonable requests of the Company in connection therewith. Such Indemnitee shall not enter into a settlement or other compromise with respect to any Claim without the prior written consent of the Company, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, unless such Indemnitee waives its right to be indemnified with respect to such Claim under this Section 4.02. Where the Company or the insurers under a policy of insurance maintained by the Company undertake the defense of an Indemnitee with respect to a Claim, no additional legal fees or expenses of such Indemnitee in connection with the defense of such Claim shall be indemnified hereunder unless such fees or expenses were incurred at the written request of the Company or such insurers. Subject to the requirements of any policy of insurance, an Indemnitee may participate at its own expense in any judicial proceeding controlled by the Company pursuant to the preceding provisions; provided that such party’s participation does not, in the opinion of the counsel appointed by the Company or its insurers to conduct such proceedings, interfere with such control; and such participation shall not constitute a waiver of the indemnification provided in this Section 4.02. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company shall not under any circumstances be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for all Indemnitees.

(g) Subrogation. To the extent that a Claim indemnified by the Company under this Section 4.02 is in fact paid in full by the Company or an insurer under a policy of insurance maintained by the Company, the Company or such insurer, as the case may be, shall, without any further action, be subrogated to the rights and remedies of the Indemnitee on whose behalf such Claim was paid with respect to the transaction or event giving rise to such Claim. Such Indemnitee shall give such further assurances or agreements and shall cooperate with the Company or such insurer, as the case may be, to

 

17

[Reg. No.]


permit the Company or such insurer to pursue such rights and remedies, if any, to the extent reasonably requested by the Company. So long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, if an Indemnitee receives any payment from any party other than the Company or its insurers, in whole or in part, with respect to any Claim paid by the Company or its insurers hereunder, it shall promptly pay over to the Company the amount received (but not an amount in excess of the amount the Company or any of its insurers has paid in respect of such Claim). Any amount referred to in the preceding sentence that is payable to the Company shall not be paid to the Company, or, if it has been previously paid directly to the Company, shall not be retained by the Company, if at the time of such payment an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, but shall be paid to and held by the Loan Trustee as security for the obligations of the Company under this Agreement, the Indenture and the other Operative Documents, and, if the Company agrees, shall be applied against the Company’s obligations hereunder and thereunder when and as they become due and payable and, at such time as there shall not be continuing any such Event of Default, such amount, to the extent not previously so applied against the Company’s obligations, shall be paid to the Company.

(h) No Guaranty. Nothing set forth in this Section 4.02 shall constitute a guarantee by the Company that the Aircraft shall at any time have any particular value, useful life or residual value.

(i) Payments; Interest. Any amount payable to any Indemnitee pursuant to this Section 4.02 shall be paid within 30 days after receipt by the Company of a written demand therefor from such Indemnitee accompanied by a written statement describing in reasonable detail the Claims that are the subject of and basis for such indemnity and the computation of the amount payable. Any payments made pursuant to this Section 4.02 directly to an Indemnitee or to the Company, as the case may be, shall be made in immediately available funds at such bank or to such account as is specified by the payee in written directions to the payor or, if no such directions shall have been given, by check of the payor payable to the order of the payee and mailed to the payee by certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid to its address referred to in Section 7.01. To the extent permitted by applicable law, interest at the Past Due Rate shall be paid, on demand, on any amount or indemnity not paid when due pursuant to this Section 4.02 until the same shall be paid. Such interest shall be paid in the same manner as the unpaid amount in respect of which such interest is due.
