    "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."

    I would have immediately went back to coach. No way I could have stayed up there.

    I think the guy had the right to complain. You don't pay 3200 pounds English to sit with a corpse and grieving daughter, you pay that for the luxury of privacy and comfort. I understand the the airline didn't have many options, but they could have provided something to the paying customers for the inconvience of going through the mess. Airline seem to think they can't afford customer service anymore.

    They could have safely stowed her away in the overhead compartment.

    Man: I can't believe I had to sit next to a dead woman for 9 hours.

    Old man 2 rows behind: You think that's bad? I've sat next to a dead woman for the last 20 years.
