This is horrible. It is inexcusable and cruel!!!!

Be sure to read to the end to see how many pets have died in United planes. I know that I'll be rethinking if I ever fly on United again!

Quote:
....... a fellow passenger on United flight 1284 from Houston to New York's LaGuardia Airport on Monday night and wrote in a Facebook post that she witnessed a flight attendant instruct the traveler flying with the dog to stow the carrier, with the dog inside, in an overhead bin.

The passenger was asked to move the bag because it was sticking out into the aisle, according to a person familiar with the incident.

"By the end of the flight, the dog was dead," Gremminger wrote. "The woman, crying in the airplane aisle on the floor."

Disgusting! At the same time, I would've NEVER put my dog up there in the first place. Go ahead, kick me off the plane, but that would be like putting them in a sealed plastic tub. Common sense would tell ya there's not going to be any air in there after a short while. I feel for the owners tho, airlines do horrible things to people that resist their stupid rules. That's why I drive if I have to go anywhere. The only one I whole-heartedly trust with my dog's life is me!

I just read online that United has apologized for sending a dog to Japan instead of KC.

Apparently they are flying the dog (a 10 year old German Shepherd named Irgo) back to the U.S.
In the passenger cabin this time, AS THEY SHOULD! :rant: Poor dog. :(

Good Lord, I just saw the story about the mixed up dogs too. How can they be so stupid? What a horrible trip that has to be for BOTH dogs. Poor babies!

United apologised??? For murdering the dog? I cannot bear to think of what the poor dog went through.

Whitewolf, there's exactly the same amount of oxygen in the overhead compartments as there is in the cabin or even the baggage area below the passenger compartment. Neither of these areas are sealed compartments. This was obviously a very horrible accident but it has a lot more to do with the dogs stress level then anything else. Putting that same dog under the seat in front of you, cramped in on all sides very well would have had the same result. Dogs die on airlines fairly regularly. They get too stressed from never being in a dog crate, new environment, and in cramped spaces weather it being under the seat or in the baggage compartment. Very unfortunate for everyone involved for sure. This one just got all the media hype because it happened in the passenger compartment. If that same dog had died in the baggage area where most dogs are, you would have never heard about it.

AMRE2ME, I sure wouldn't put a baby in there, would you? Assuming I would fit, I certainly wouldn't put myself in there either. If you'd like to ride there, I promise to let you out if it gets uncomfortable for ya. Don't buy that, sorry. That would be a great place to put a dog if what you say were true, so why isn't that the dog compartment? The fact that you wouldn't even be able to keep an eye out for any distress makes it dangerous.

Please show me where I said it was a good place to put a dog? Stop trying to change what I said. What YOU said is complete nonsense! "Common sense would tell ya there's not going to be any air in there after a short while."
That is such a rediculous statement it's hard to believe you actually said that! I built airplanes for Lockheed and Boeing for years so when I read such rediculous statements, I'm not going to let it go without correction. So much for "common sense"
