He was sweating and having seizures, Pettersson, a journalist for Radio Sweden told Sveriges Radio. Air hostesses were there all along, but the plane took off anyway.
Despite efforts by a passenger who performed a cardiac massage, then man died while aboard the flight bound to Dar es Salaam.
While passengers who were seated next to the man were relocated to new seats, Pettersson and a friend were forced to remain seated near the man in the next aisle for the remainder of the overnight flight, since there were no extra open spots for the two.
Of course it was unpleasant, Pettersson told The Local, But I am not a person who makes a fuss.
Turns out Pettersson filed a complaint with Kenya Airways, saying that she was not satisfied with the flight, prompting the airline to partially reimburse Pettersson for her experience. Pettersson reportedly was refunded $713 (5000 kronor), which amounted to half the cost of her boarding pass.
This feels much better, Pettersson said. It is reasonable.
