Final frontier, Part Two

Giving a new meaning to the concept of ‘terminal’, a Belgian mortuary firm’s latest undertaking, as it were, has brought a new niche to airport customer service. The firm, Sophia, has opened an upscale facility at the Brussels airport for coffin and casket shipments. Seems that large numbers of North African immigrants to Belgium want a final resting place in the homeland and Sophia thinks that the loved ones deserve something better than a cargo shed while waiting for that final flight. If this kicks off a trend, airports could see stiff competition.
