Americans Airlines Policy :(From Jetnet 6-23-2017)

We understand how painful losing a loved one is and we want to respect the wishes of travelers and employees who wish to carry or transport crematory remains as part of their carry-on luggage.

Employees, retirees or eligible family members are allowed to carry on a crematory container provided Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening and the laws of the country of destination (if applicable) can be met. This does apply to international employees; however, charges are only waived on American’s portion of the transport in cases where interline travel is required.

The company also provides confirmed space for the shipment of an employee’s, retiree’s or eligible family member’s remains between cities on the American Airlines system. At this time, American Eagle is unable to accommodate the shipment of remains. For additional information, you may contact If you have any questions at all about this, the TLC Dept is open 24/7 and their number is: 800-852-3333


You will need to contact the funeral home or mortuary to make the arrangements. They will need your employee number, station/branch and your relation to the deceased. The funeral home will contact our Cargo Department to make the arrangements.


Any additional charges will be the responsibility of the next-of-kin or estate. The company is unable to secure courtesy shipment of remains on other airlines.
