My wife and I are flying through JFK Terminal 4 on January 6th. As my wife is wheelchair bound and requires my assistance for using restroom facilities, are there any family restrooms in the Terminal 4 area; and if there are any, where are they located?
Thank you!

There are family rooms at JFK located next to the conventional restrooms.

I am flying out of the country and would like to take some of my sons ashes on board the flight. I have documentation: His death certificate, the Crematory Certificate of Cremation along with an amount of his ashes.
Do I need any other documentation or is this enough to complete my trip overseas? What are the specific requirements on this issue?

Here is what Delta policy says about that:


Cremated remains can be accepted as either carry-on or checked baggage. The passenger must have a death or cremation certificate.


Passenger may carry on a crematory container, but it must pass through the x-ray machine. If the container is made of a material that prevents the screener from clearly being able to see what is inside, the container will not be allowed through the security checkpoint. Crematory containers are made from many different types of materials. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) suggests that the passenger purchase a temporary or permanent crematory container of a lighter material such as wood or plastic which can be successfully x-rayed. Out of respect for the deceased, the screener may not open the container under any circumstances.

Checked Baggage

A passenger may transport an urn as checked baggage, provided that it successfully passes through screening.

Note: Only a funeral home can ship unaccompanied cremated remains. Anyone can pick up cremated remains at the receiving point. "

I guess the other airlines have similar policies. To be on the safe side contact the airline you will be flying on for details.

The TSA people treat the carrying of loved ones ashes through the checkpoint with as much dignity as possible while following the necessary procedures for screening. When you get to the checkpoint let the officers know that you have ashes and documentation and they will assist you.

My Friend's flight arrives today at 1:15 pm from Shanghai. How long should I allow for them to go through customs?

It takes somewhere between 30-50 mins.

Customs generally takes 30-45 minutes however it could take longer due to holiday traffic.
