Re: Mailing Fish (exploding fish)

The Post Office has been using Emory Air Freight for a number of years now 
for Priority packages. (Express Mail still is handled by the PO.) What the 
bettatalk person was referring to is that the holds on the Emory planes are 
not as pressurized as those on commercial (passenger) flights. There is a 
very slim chance that a bag (NOT the fish)  may expand enough to pop,but I 
have yet to have that happen in 25 years of shipping fish. The only thing 
that I have had happen on a couple of shipments was that the water nearly 
froze. Turns out that the holds on Emory planes are not heated and it gets 
might cold at 30,000 feet!! Heat packs can solve that easily enough.
