“We want to be as respectful as possible if that [death on board] actually happens,” she said.

“They are put in their seat especially for landing to make sure they are secured in the aircraft, but what is interesting with that is when the aircraft does land it is considered a crime scene.

“So the police come on and assess the whole aircraft and the passengers. So if that [death on board] ever happens on your flight, expect to be there for a little while after you land.”

Ms Young also revealed how hard it is to get into a very exclusive club on board … commonly known as the ‘mile high club’.

“I mostly do the short haul international haul and domestic flights, so [sex on planes] might be more common on more long haul flights when people have a bit more time and they get bored,” she explained.

“There’s no real training involved [if someone is caught having sex on a plane] just use personal skills and letting them do what they need to. To be honest, I would never recommend anyone do that on an aircraft but each to their own. You might catch something!”

Ms Young said that while she hasn’t caught someone out, she’s seen plenty of other things on board a plane that would raise eyebrows.

“You see a lot as a flight attendant,” she explained.

“The [most disturbing are] just bodily functions. People will hand me piss bags, or clipping toenails on board. All that kind of stuff. You get it all really.”
