How United Airlines Is Trying to Prevent More Dog Deaths

How United Airlines Is Trying to Prevent More Dog Deaths”

"And then the flight attendant came, she said you have to put him up there because it's going to block the path", said 11-year-old Sophia Ceballos.

Airline industry expert Michael Boyd of Boyd Group International, who was once a flight attendant himself, says the airline should have been more observant.

Sophia said when she discovered the dog had died, the flight attendant tried to claim she hadn't realised the French Bulldog was in the bag. We apologize for this mistake and are following up with the vendor kennel where they were kept overnight to understand what happened.

A month later, a giant pet rabbit died on a flight.

Robledo had paid a fee of $US125 ($NZ170) for her dog to fly in the cabin, which was refunded along with the cost of airfare. "We were really anxious", Sophia said, according to NBC Chicago.

When they landed, Robledo opened the overhead compartment and realized the dog wasn't moving.

"We don't know if the dog died in Houston or if the dog died in NY or on the way to NY".

"She was saying, 'Kokito, Kokito wake up!'" Ceballos recalled her mother saying. A stranger offered to take the baby and passengers normally hurrying to grab bags and get off the plane were frozen in shock.

"Her train of thought was this is an authority figure on the plane, maybe there's ventilation that she knows about that I'm not aware of", said Castano. "I don't care, '" Budenz said. Both Robledo and her daughter were unable to check on the puppy's welfare during the flight due to turbulence and only discovered the dog had died on arrival in NY. "It's a dog.' She's like, 'It doesn't matter, you still put it up there.' And she just put, she helped her put it up, and she just closed it like it was a baggage". "Her daughter was also crying". They lost their dog because of an @united flight attendant. "My heart is broken", she wrote.

According to fellow passenger Maggie Gremminger, the woman wanted to keep the dog, which was in a small carrying bag, under her seat, but the flight attendant insisted that she put the animal overhead.

WNBC reported that the family went through the right channels to bring Kokito on board.

The Robledo family told Fox 5 that United told them someone would be in touch but they are still waiting.

Fitzpatrick says no animal belongs in an overhead bin, and if someone could have just checked on little Kokito from time to time, her life may have been saved because monitoring your on-board pet is very important.
