(we) may forfeit their entire fare

Hi there, the following is the letter from one airline:
Check-in at the xxx Counter closes 60 minutes before your scheduled departure. Passengers who arrive after check-in has closed will not be able to board the flight and may forfeit their entire fare.
I think it doesn't sound good as it is. It seems to me we should be inserted before may forfeit:

...and we may forfeit their entire fare.
Do you think so?

    The subject of the verb remains "the passengers." In the original sentence, the airline company takes no blame or responsibility for passengers who lose their fare for arriving late.
