Without commenting on this case directly, as I don't wish it to be played 
back to me in a nasty gram from a superior, obviously those are very fair 
questions which a national's consulate could address (which did not seem to 
be much mentioned).  My problem was the hyperbole and sensationalism.  

I do note that there are costs to bring a decedent back from another country. 
 I don't have a feel for how much in this case, but they would could well 
include embalming, coffin, perhaps coffin container, transport, and special 
handling.  They didn't say who the airline was.
