Lena Petterson, one of Radio Sweden’s journalist, was flying from Amsterdam to Tanzani on Kenya Airways when she was forced to sit next a dead body. The man across the aisle was in bad condition when the plane took off and died half way through the flight. The body was wrapped with a blanket and put across three seats, other passengers were moved away from him but not Petterson.
Petterson was refunded half the price of her ticket when she complained to the airline. She spent half the flight with his feet only inches away from her. Petterson apparently did not want to make a fuss so she did not cause a scene at being left beside the dead body.
