Flight attendant Suzanne Grady's bloody corpse rolls off the luggage conveyor belt at Miami airport, in a leaking suitcase. Kyle is doing great again in her autopsy. She had a steamy affair with the adulterous pilot and raised great envy with low-paid coworkers. She signaled a passenger for smoking in the lavatory, who turns out to be a soft stalker. The air marshal denies having seen the corpse being removed passed his seat. Several people aboard were mixed in drug smuggle. Written by KGF Vissers

Cabin(s) In The Sky
31 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You have to give it to the CSI writers - they sure come up with some original openings....things one would never (and hopefully) see in real life. In this episode, we have a bloody corpse coming down the baggage conveyor belt onto the baggage carousel at the airport! The dead body is one of the stewardesses on the flight from San Diego.

Suspects include a guy sneaking a cigarette on the flight (which is illegal now), a federal air marshal, a co-pilot, a baggage man, another stewardess or two. It might even be a case of accidental death.

CSI will take all these possibilities with us as they try to figure out this puzzler. Almost all the suspects, of course, have "attitudes" or are immoral in some shape or form, as usual.

By the way, are there really "private refuges" on these big planes? Just asking.
