"A British Airways passenger was refused compensation and told by the airline to 'get over it' after a corpse was placed in the row where he was sitting last week.
Paul Trinder, 54, a businessman from Brackley, Northamptonshire, spent more than �3,000 for a first-class ticket from Delhi. He awoke during the flight to find that cabin staff were propping up a dead woman almost next to him. 'The stewards just plonked down this body without saying a thing,' he said. 'I remember looking at this thin, sparrow-like woman and thinking she was very ill.'"
