First class flight's dead disturbing
March 19, 2007



A passenger in first class woke up to a shock when he found himself sitting near a corpse on a British Airways flight, British newspapers reported today.
Paul Trinder, 54, said cabin crew moved the body of the elderly woman from the economy section where she had died after take-off, the Mirror and Sun tabloids said.

"The corpse was strapped into the seat but because of turbulence it kept slipping down on to the floor,'' Trinder, a businessman, was quoted as saying.
"It was horrific. The body had to be wedged in place with lots of pillows.''
The woman's daughter was also upgraded and spent the rest of the nine-hour flight from Delhi to London grieving next to her dead mother, the Sun reported.
The Guardian newspaper said the incident happened last week.
British Airways has apologised for any distress suffered, according to the reports.
The Mirror quoted BA as saying: "We apologise, but our crew were working in difficult circumstances and chose the option they thought would cause least disruption.''
