Article To Explain Singapore Corpse Cabinet

Tue May 11, 2004 3:21 pm

Months ago a thread with photos showed a cabinet on an A340 ordered by Singapore reportably for storage of passengers who died inflight. No explanation was found but here is today's (5/10) news article on it.

I'll be dammed! I thought it was a joke but apparently the speculation on the thread was right. I guess it's true about Asian airlines providing superior service.  Big grin

It seams like preventing...

but is it really needed?, I mean, How many people die during a flight? and, how often does this happen?
