There are millions of people who are traveling by plane every day and it’s safe to predict that the person next to you can die anytime at 30,000 ft. Do the airlines do an emergency landing? Do people freak out? I’m sure you would have wondered and made an assumption of your own. Even you would have heard stories from people but who knows if they are telling the truth. But thanks to the airlines for revealing what really happens when someone dies.
Flight attendants are well trained to handle all sorts of emergency situations and when someone dies in mid-air, this is what they do:
1. Flight attendants get special training on how to respond when someone dies mid-flight
2. Bodies are normally stored in a compartment in the first class section
3. Sometimes cabin crew are instructed to use the locker in the event of a death on a long-route
