Family whose dog died in overhead compartment accuses flight attendant of 'lying'

A family in Kansas is eagerly waiting for their beloved pet dog to return home after it was mistakenly flown to Japan by United Airlines.

The airline has apologized, expressed condolences and said it's investigating the incident to keep it from happening again.

However, prosecutors won't decide whether or not to press charges until the investigation is completed.

A flight attendant locked a family's French Bulldog, Kokito, in an overhead compartment for a three-and-a-half hour trip from Houston, Texas to NY on Monday (12Mar18).

According to social media posts from June Lara and Maggie Gremminger, two passengers on the flight, a United Airlines flight attendant insisted to the family that Kokito needed to be stored in the overhead bin of the plane. "However, our flight attendant did not hear or understand her, and did not knowingly place the dog in the overhead bin", the airline said in a statement. A flight attendant, anxious that the carrier did not fit under the seat, instructed the owners to put the carrier in the overhead compartment, where the dog perished after the 3½-hour flight.

A French bulldog died after being placed in an overhead bin at the direction of a United Airlines flight attendant.

"They have some explaining to do", Kennedy said. "Kokito, Kokito and he didn't wake up", she said.

"She took him out, and he was dead", Sophia said.

India grounds Pratt-powered A320neos
That's not acceptable, according to the DGCA, which said the manufacturer had "no concrete proposal in place at this stage". Post the incident, the DGCA said that the flights with the A-320 neo engines must be grounded with immediate effect.

Mrs Swindle said that United didn't know how the mistake happened, but she was told by the airline that the kennels were "similar".

Last year, 18 animals, mostly dogs, died while being transported on United - three-fourths of all animal deaths on USA carriers, according to the Department of Transportation.

United has issued a statement apologising for the incident.

The report found that of the 24 animals that have died 18 did so while being handled by United. Kennedy believes dogs should be treated like family members, and not let to die on a plane.

United Airlines has dealt with a large number of highly-publicized customer service incidents over the past few years. No matter what the flight attendant says. Alaska Airlines, which carries only 17 percent fewer animals, had just two deaths previous year. Of 15 reported injuries, 13 occurred with United.

United told Fox 5 that independent medical experts determined most of the animal deaths were due to pre-existing conditions or the animal being unfamiliar with traveling in a crate.

United said that by next month, it would issue brightly colored bag tags to passengers traveling with in-cabin pets to help flight attendants easily identify the animals.
