Probably not. Most people tend to avoid thinking about death.
As many of you know, I worked in airports all across the country for over 5-years. It’s rather surprising the kind of crazy that happens at airports every day. I’ve seen wild drunks, fights, people carrying loaded firearms, abusive husbands, dead people, body parts for medical use, sick people, medical emergencies, and so much more. Over time you learn about what happens in these cases.
Why am I writing about this?
Well, my friend, it relates to my book DEAD ISLANDS, the first book in my Necrose Series. Although DEAD ISLANDS hasn’t been released yet, I just wanted to address the issue because I think it’s quite interesting.
There are a number of options for the flight crew if a person dies or “expires” in-flight.
Sometimes the flight attendants simply leave the body in their seat and pretend they’re just ill or passed out. Sometimes they will move the body to an empty row or place them in the galley and cover them with a blanket. On particularly long flights, some airlines have addressed the issue by building special body closets.
Usually, the plane will continue on to its destination. However, sometimes the flight will divert and land to remove the body.
How would you feel if you were sleeping and woke up next to a dead body? Would you be creeped out if you knew a dead person was on your flight?
