This Is What Happens When You Die On A Plane

Ever wondered what would happen to your corpse after you are gone? Well at least British Airways can tell you what will happen if you passed on on one of their flights.....

In the very rare case you died halfway during a during a passenger flight, airline staff would be stuck with a dead body, distraught fellow passengers and limited space.

Do they simply put your corpse in a vacant toilet?

The problem with that option is that the body will inevitably end up on the toilet floor and could get stuck. According to a flight attendant trainer: ‘You would have to take the aircraft apart to get that person out.’

A British Airways spokesman told the MailOnline: ‘We expect our cabin crew to treat customers who have passed away with dignity and respect.

‘This usually involves trying to move the person to an available seat in the most private area possible.

‘Our cabin crew will then focus their efforts on looking after any family, friends and travelling companions to give them privacy and support at an extremely stressful and upsetting time.’Many long-haul passenger jets are equipped with body bags and indeed some are given ‘corpse cupboards’ made just to store dead bodies.

Without either of the above two options, attendants are trained to find as private a seat possible, cover the body with a blanket up to the neck and buckle the cadaver into the seat.

One could call this the ‘Weekend at Bernies’ option.
