This has happened before. Not unusual to not notice someone dying on a plane, we all like to have our privacy. I just wouldn't want to sit in the seat that someone died in. Gross!

This was an elderly person (78 years old) who died. I guess adjacent passangers didn't notice her and just left her alone. At least she probably died in a peaceful way, but still it is sad to hear  tombstone

It can easily happen. If there is no pain or obvious injury or discomfort -- add to that the darkness of a late flight -- it'd be easy not to notice anything amiss.

This happens almost every couple of years and it goes unnoticed by the media. Ask any veteran FLL gate agent. They all have stories about these elderly passengers in and out of South Florida. Most times they are just covered with a blanket to show some respect and the family is paged in the meeting area.

Alot of times what happens is near the end these folks "take a turn for the worse" and the family needs to arrange some other type of living arraingment.

They do this one last trip, usually with a family member to avoid a lengthy car trip.

No urban legend, although I believe it was a US domestic flight.

With regards to the thread title, death happens, albeit rarely, onboard aircraft The fact that news or press needs to get involved eludes me. I do not mean to sound harsh, but I didn't realize that it was newsworthy. If every death was newsworthy, there would be a lot more news on and more news to print.

My condolences to the family.

This is true. Noone onboard an aircraft can pronounce a customer dead inflight. Not even a MD or paramedic. Certainly not a F/A. When the flight lands and arrives at a gate, the appropriate medical personnel that meets the flight performs that function.

My guess is that this happens more than most people might think. Ok, the chances of sitting on that very seat are somewhat slim but most of us regular travelers have probably been on a plane where somebody died once (or was carrying a body in the cargo hold).

Creepy, yes. But it happens.

I remember an AF 777 landed in ATL once with a DOA. Apparently, the guy died sometime inflight and although I do not know if the flight crew was aware or not, the plane continued to ATL. Everyone deplaned out the jetway while this old guy and his wife accompanying him exited out the rear galley door via a catering truck to the ambulance below. I assume he was already dead, as there did not seem to be much of a rush to get underway.

Passengers die every year and usually die in their sleep, as compared to having a flailing heart attack in the aisle and have no one notice. It does remind me of the BA crew that found someone dead and stuffed them into the lav, then marked it INOPERATIVE. Kinda funny.

My brother once worked for ACA when they flew the Jetstreams and told me a rumor that if someone dies and is going to be flown to burial, since the Jetstream can't hold a coffin in the cargo bin, the person is placed in a body bag and seated in the last row of the plane, blocked off and covered with blankets. Now, I found that VERY hard to believe, but it does make some sense, as how else are you going to fly a body that can't fit in the cargo bin with a casket? Airlines always find a way to not have to say no to money. LOL

I work in air traffic controll and I had two real severe medical emergencies. One good, one bad. In the good one the aircraft was close to the arrival airport and got all directs he needed to make it. The first one was worse. A flight was going to London and was just over Berlin when he wanted to deviate to Frankfurt because if a medical reason. So we sent him direct to Frankfurt. After about seven minutes then the pilot said that there was no more need for him to go to Frankfurt and that he wanted to continue to London instead. Sad but true. Wouldn`t want to trade with the pilot, but there really was no more need for him to go to Frankfurt.  tombstone

Very true. An AA F/A friend of mine said a women had died on a JFK-PAP flight, she noticed she was already gone on the pre-departure seat belt check. She covered her with a blanket, the other passengers didn't know, they thought she was sleeping. They removed her and pronounced her dead at the gate so the plane wouldn't be impounded for at least 24 hours... it was a turnaround JFK-PAP-JFK, naturally... it's not uncommon at all.

Very often elderly people know they are dying and try to make it to the place they wish to die in... that's why it's so common... and they aren't telling anyone what they know or they won't be boarded!

On long haul flights, if someone dies on board, there is this thing called "rigor mortis" Once it sets, you'll have to remove the passenger along with the whole freaking seat row. It's very difficult to maneuver a person in rigor mortis. That is why SQ ordered that compartment to store bodies.

Quoting Wukka (Reply 44):

You are right. That is why I find it difficult to understand how no one noticed. The smell of the spilled contents when the sphincter relaxes upon death would be enough to notice. Also, dead people make strange noises while they are dying (even in their sleep) and after they're dead.

On the other hand, I read somewhere that not everybody's sphincter relaxes, maybe this was the case.

No I actually don't "know". I am PM with them, and have no complaints. I have no complaints w/ any US carrier. They're all about the same.

I'm reminded of my Army days in Frankfurt. Every now and then you'd have a elderly person pass away on the street or in the Bahnhof. To Germans being around crowds and walking so much this wasn't really out of the ordinary. Many would just walk by by while someone was having a heart attack. Sort of resigned that their time had come. US soldiers were not really accustomed to mass transportation or being in a large city so close to one another. They would freak out when this sort of thing happened, attempt CRP, get really distressed. You just don't experience this so much when you drive a car from point to point.

Oh well. Live and learn.
