    Women try to take body on plane at Liverpool airport (UK)

    Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative onto a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

    Staff became suspicious when the women tried to check in the man, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

    The man is thought to have died the previous day and was in a wheelchair.
    The women, aged 41 and 66, were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death.

    The pair, who are German nationals but live in Oldham, have been released on bail until 1 June, police said.

    Officers are investigating reports that the body had been taken to the airport by taxi from Oldham, a spokesman said.

    Big deal, so long as he did not smell too bad, he would be much less of a pain-in-the-ass than some people I have flown with. At least he would not recline his seat back during meal service.

    Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative on to a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

    Staff became suspicious when they tried to check in 91-year-old Curt Willi Jarant, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

    The women - his widow and step-daughter - said they thought he was asleep.
    They were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death, police said.

    The pair, who are German nationals but live in Oldham, have been released on bail until 1 June, police said.

    It is understood they took Mr Jarant to the airport in a taxi.

    Anke Anusic: "Of course we did not know he was dead"

    Asked to describe her late husband, who she called Willi, Gitta Jarant said: "[He was] the best man of the world - good man.

    "I [did not] kill my Willi. My Willi is my god. I [have loved] my Willi for 22 years."
    Mr Jarant's step-daughter Anke Anusic added: "They would think that for 24 hours we would carry a dead person? This is ridiculous. He was moving, he was breathing. Eight people saw him."

    A member of staff at Broadway Cars in Oldham, who asked not to be named, confirmed the private hire company had taken the passengers to Liverpool but declined to comment further, saying it was "a big deal" for the business.
    A spokesman for Liverpool John Lennon Airport said: "In view of the fact that this incident is currently under police investigation and we understand arrests have been made, we cannot comment any further at this stage."
    More puns anyone?

    Maybe doing it for a bet. Got the idea from Weekend at Bernie's.

    An economy seat on these bucket airlines is probably cheaper than freight charges for a corpse anyway.



    He looks pretty dead. Kind of shrivelled up. Maybe been dead for a while. Can't imagine that fooling any air hostesses.

    Checking him in on a seat is much cheaper than sending him as a horizontal passenger, around half the price.

    Highly likely that they were from the former East German State and found it difficult to adjust to the not so soft Federal Republic, where you don't get benefits handed on a plate to you like in the UK.
    Travel lightly ....
