Okay. This is just weird. This appears to be in the passenger cabin, not cargo, so I don't think it is for the scheduled transporting of bodies, but rather for inflight deaths (this is also what the photographer says). So are inflight deaths that common that this is needed? Am I the only airline employee/fan that finds this as an odd use of precious aircraft space? Do any other commercial aircraft (this is an SQ
A345) have this feature?
The photo's caption read: "An unusual feature found in this A345 is this air conditioned compartment used to store bodies. Although rare, in flight deaths have occured periodically with several airlines."
