Dead Bodies Are Stored In The Cargo Hold

When it comes to precious cargo, such as a dead body, they are often stored right underneath where you sit in the cargo hold. Many people might be freaked out by the thought that a dead body is in the same plane as you, but it is pretty standard and completely safe.

Transporting a body by plane is one of the easiest ways to transport a body far distances, and these bodies are looked at before being placed on the plane so that they have a health certificate stating the body is clean and has no diseases. The good thing is that the body in the cargo hold is entirely separate from the cabin, so you don’t have to worry about odd smells.
