I highly doubt it due to severity of the injuries her and her entourage received from the plane crashing. The coroner will have a autopsy done and if the morgution declares it orange then neither the family or the public will be allowed to view the body. Only people such as the parents can petition to view the body and even then the petition can be denied. From my understanding Aaliyah was burned extremely badly and her body was contorted so i doubt very strongly that the funeral was open casket. They had pictures of her everywhere and to the left of the casket but it was closed the entire time.
i think about Aaliyah,you 're right after a crash ,the body is severely injuried ,a crash car or a crash plane this is the same result.it was better that everybody and her family remember Aaliyah in a good record,alive,with joy.i saw my mother dead and she was different,the body change with the death.to remember Aaliyah alive was a good choice for her relatives.the death was so unwaited and tragical that everybody were shocked!!!!!
Aaliyah was very loved and will always be remembered
no because she was burned so badly her family didn't want it open

There might be also a "yes" a n d "no" answer because of the type of casket used in Aaliya's funeral. She had one of the last seamless solid copper deposit caskets (units made from electrolytically deposited copper instead of welded sheets of copper) manufactured by the former National Casket Co. of Boston, Mass. This was a very exclusive casket, extremely heavy (around 800 lbs) and extraordinarily expensive - topped only by cast bronze units. This type of casket was also used for the funerals of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and for Elvis Presley (though in their cases round corner designs had been chosen instead of the more female looking urn-shaped design used in her case). Aaliya's casket had even a silver plated finish adding to the high price. In addition to that, it was a double lid casket: under the undivided outer top there was a divided inner lid. (There is a picture of such an opened copper deposit casket on Flickr.) This would have made it possible to open the outer lid during the funeral ceremony while keeping the inner lid closed. This is sometimes done in cases of mutilated bodies: it allows the mourners to place flowers and last gifts into the casket of the deceased while being spared seeing the mutilated face. If this was the case with Aaliyah's funeral, it would have been correct to speak of a closed casket as well as of an open casket.
