Here is what Delta policy says about that:

"CREMATED REMAINS

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

Carry-On

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.

Can someone please tell me where Gate 23 is located, JFK to DCA flight. Thanks

If this is the Delta JFK-DCA flight gate 23 is T2 where the small Delta Connection commuter jets depart.

Hi, Can anyone tell me how the traffic in JFK is gonna be like for checking in for air france AF017 terminal 1 on the night of December 24? How long would it take for waiting in line for checking-in? Also how about air-tran and subway? Does it take long on Dec 24 also?

Anyone?

Go to Flightaware.com and put it in....

Expect all terminals to be busy with holiday travelers. Allow at least two hours for check-in/security, more if possible. AirTrain and subways run 24/7.

could someone tell me what time Delta flight 3054 arrives at JFK? It was delayed.

Please advise if the JFK Airport is working on December 24-th and if the customs there working as well? Thks!

Yes, JFK Airport is open on that date and customs are working as well.
