Several years ago my bil brought my dh's aunt's ashes to Hawaii as it was her wish for them to be buried on Waikiki. I believe he carried them on, and I also think he needed some kind of documentation.Is carrying human remains in the passenger cabin legal? I would have expected this would require special handling, declarations, etc.
Edited to add:
Huh, I'm surprised. I guess you can travel with the urn.
Good to know!Ashes are ashes, and except in the minds of the descendents, really are no longer 'human remains'. You can transport them any way you want, and as far as I know, there is no restriction to scattering them on any public land.
I know my bil did some research before bringing their aunt's ashes to Hawaii. I think he was quite nervous about it.Good to know!
Which just makes me wonder about my parents' decision process. It was their understanding moving remains (they weren't specific to form; both were cremated) across state lines was prohibitive due to changes in related laws. Huh. I like your answer better, thx.
