So what happens if someone dies while in mid-flight?

A flight attendant was recently on a podcast and she explained what happens if someone passes away while on a flight.

Much to my surprise, she says that if someone passes away while on a flight, they keep the deceased person in their assigned seat and recline them.


Yes, the deceased person is covered up to their neck and left in the seat until the plane lands.

Sadly, there's a chance if someone passes while on the plane with you that you could be seated next to a dead person until the plane lands.

Check out this video of the flight attendant explaining protocol if someone passes away while on a flight.
