United Airlines is on a roll when it comes to dealing with passengers pet and passengers in general.
The flight attendants, already known for coming down heavily on passengers if need be, are said to be actually killing passengers’ pets.
According to eyewitness, a woman traveling from Houston to New York in company of his little kids, and a French Bulldog in tow was said to have been forced to place her Dog inside its carrier in the overhead compartment for the flight duration.
It was reported that the Dog had been inside an airline-approved carrier, which is typically placed underneath the front seat of a passenger as it had been instructed, but for an unknown reason , the flight attendant ordered that the woman should place the Dog in the overhead compartment which she did after some rigorous argument.
It was reported that the Dog barked from the bin for at least 30 minutes of the flight, and later became silent.
On landing, the owner was reported to have opened the bin, removed the carrier/kernel and discovered that her Dog had died.
The flight attendant thereafter got frazzled and tried to comfort the woman and her daughter crying.
United airline had so far released a statement on the incident:
“This was a tragic accident that should never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin. We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them. We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again.”
