A Dead Body Was Found on A Jet2 Flight Plane Toilets

Last Tuesday, January 2nd, Jet2 flight LS918, en route from Tenerife to Manchester, faced an unforeseen and somber diversion to Cork Airport following a distressing discovery onboard. Passengers, having noticed that a man had been in the airplane’s toilet for an unusually long time, raised the alarm to the cabin crew. This led to the uncovering of a tragic situation: the passenger had passed away in the aircraft’s lavatory.


In response to the alarming situation, Jet2’s cabin crew, trained for a variety of in-flight emergencies, promptly intervened. Despite their best efforts, the passenger could not be revived. Jet2 told The Standard acknowledging the incident and expressing condolences.

“Flight LS918 from Tenerife to Manchester diverted to Cork Airport on Tuesday, January 2, due to a customer requiring medical attention. Regrettably, we can confirm that the customer sadly passed away, despite the best efforts of our highly-trained crew who intervened as soon as they became aware. This was an extremely difficult situation for our crew and we would like to thank them for their efforts. Our thoughts are with the customer’s family and friends at this very difficult time.”
