The Times of London says that when a passenger died in coach on a flight from India to London, the crew put the body in the first-class section. First-class passenger Paul Trinder woke from a nap to discover the dead person in his row. British Airways says it's sorry, but Trinder claims the airline first told him to "get over it."

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Economy seats have an advantage over first class on a British Airways flight. The Times of London says a plane was flying from India to London when a passenger died. The crew had no place to put the body, so they brought her up first class, which is how Paul Trinder woke up from a nap to discover a dead person in his row and five hours left until landing. British Airways says it's sorry, but Mr. Trinder claims the airline first told him to just get over it.

It's MORNING EDITION.
