Flight Fright

Kathryn Quinn

Swedish radio reporter Lena Pettersson, 34, has been given a 50 per cent refund after she was made to sit next to a dead man on a Kenya Airways flight from Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

The 35-year-old man had complained of feeling unwell shortly after take off and died a short while later.

Pettersson, who works for Swedish Radio, said: "He was given cardiac massage but died a short while later. The flight attendants didn't seem to know what to do and I was left sitting opposite him."

She added: "I have to say it was not exactly a pleasant experience but I am not someone who makes a fuss. It was only when I got back that I felt actually it really wasn't acceptable - and complained."

She was given a 5,000 Swedish crown refund worth 450 GBP - representing about half the cost of her ticket - after she contacted them by email to say she was "not satisfied" with her flight.
