Brilliant: America West unknowingly flies dead passenger

Dead passenger unlikely to elicit federal action

Quote:
Federal aviation officials said Monday they don't anticipate taking any action against an airline in the case of an elderly passenger found dead on arrival at the Des Moines airport.

Regulators and America West Airlines said passengers may legally board a plane without being conscious, as was apparently the case for James Walsh.

Flight crew members told authorities that Walsh, 80, was "kind of stiff" when his nonstop flight from Phoenix arrived Saturday afternoon. They also said Walsh hadn't moved during the 140-minute flight and, at times, saliva had dripped from his mouth.
This sounds about right for America's Worst.
