My brother has left US around October 24th, 2016 for India. He is still there and found out that his Green Card has expired on 01/04/2017. He has 10 years renewal Green Card. He would like to come back to US so he can apply for his Green Card renewal; however, most of the air-lines wouldn't allow him to fly with an expired Green Card. Please tell us what are our options in this situation. An import point, he has been out of US for less than a year. Thanks
1. Can my brother e- file I-90 from India and do finger printing over there?
2. Can he travel to US if he e-file and show Notice of Action to Air-lines and CBP/Immigration without any issue?
You didn't tell us how he qualified for the greencard .... marriage to a US citizen??
2. Possibly, more information is needed.

He should go to the United States embassy abroad and explain maybe they will give him something to travel back on like a temporary visa or a transit letter
JUST BECAUSE I ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU MY CLIENT.
He should contact the US Consulate or Embassy to see how he could qualify to renew his green card. The problem is that if he has been out of the United States for an extended period of time, he may have difficulty qualifying. It also depends upon how he first obtained his permanent residency.
