Is it haram to eat human flesh if it's the only thing available?

I know that it permissible to eat pork, dead animals, or animals that have not been slaughtered properly if your life depends on it and there is nothing else. But would it be permissible to eat human flesh if you were in the same situation, say for example you were in a plane crash somewhere and the only thing available was the dead passengers?

    I have no idea. All I know is that I sure as hell wouldn't want to be associated with any organization that explicitly says it's okay with eating human flesh. Whether I would ever personally turn to cannibalism is a question I hope never to answer, and I doubt anyone can truly know the answer to it without enduring such conditions that would require it to begin with.

    Since humans can survive over 30 days without food, I will seek water and shelter, and live. I will not accept cannibalism as my only option.

    If it's for survival you would have no other choice.

    Cannibalism is wrong and is a sin. Even if one is starving, it is wrong to kill other human beings for food. If they're already dead...
