unlike yesterday’s fact that was entirely pointless … i promise that today’s fact will be interesting!
it will also be slightly disturbing and may put you off flying 😅✈️
#tdil that some airlines have a special compartment on their planes for passengers that die during flight 💀
it’s a strange one ain’t it … like, the reaper tends to just spring upon peeps at random, so what do you do if you happen to be at 30,000ft when death comes for a chill!?
well, apparently airlines deal with it in ways (we’ll mention a couple of my faves later) … but some use the aforementioned- incredibly strange – compartment!
it’s called a ‘corpse cupboard’ and it is exactly what it says on the tin – it’s literally a cupboard for corpses 🙈
yep, if you die on certain airlines (singapore airlines is one) and there isn’t any space within the cabin to place you, then you’re going to spend your first few hours as a dead dude chilling in small cupboard on a plane 😂✈️
it’s not all bad though … corpse cupboards have special straps to make sure that you don’t fly about during turbulence or landing … which is ideal 👍🏻
apparently most airlines will try to relocate you to some free seats – often first class – so the cupboard of death is a last resort.
in an interview on the bbc, an air steward trainer person mentioned that british airways have been known to seat dead peeps in first class and then just explain the situation to the rest of the passengers.
can you imagine being sat next to a corpse for, like, 11 hours?! 🙈 #superawks
that said, it’s better than what they used to do! in that same interview, the trainer went on to say that ba used to just seat the body upright and pretend they were asleep 😅 they legit used to give them a glass of vodka, a newspaper and sunglasses 😎😂
that’s literally everything that i have to say on this 😜 i just wanted to ruin air travel for you 🤷🏻♂️ next time you’re on a plane, at least you’ll be safe in the knowledge that there’s a special place for the deceased … a cupboard near the front of the plane 🙈
happy friday! 🤩 #tdil
i’ve not yet decided whether this was funny or depressing 🙈 whilst you decide for yourself, why not have a read of this good stuff over ->here<-
