Dog diverts plane

United Airlines will not forget in a hurry its encounters with dogs in the last seven days.

This time around, its flight 3996 on March 15 from Newark, N.J. to St. Louis was diverted to Akron, Ohio to deplane a dog that had been accidentally loaded onto the aircraft.

The Airline staffers realised that a dog had been loaded in cargo “by mistake” and was supposed to be transported to Akron-Canton Airport, a company spokeswoman said.

United further confirmed that the dog was safely delivered to its family, and all 33 passengers onboard were compensated for the diversion.

This is the third time this week that United has made headlines for a canine-related incident in the high skies.

On Monday, a French bulldog died after being erroneously placed by a flight attendant in an overhead bin for the duration of a trip from Houston to New York.

The incident occurred in spite its owners carried the pet onto the aircraft TSA-approved carrier that they should have been able to keep at their feet for the duration of their flight.

United has since apologised for the matter and accepted full responsibility for the incident, though the company could face a criminal probe in Texas for the animal’s death.

On Tuesday, the carrier accidentally sent a German shepherd to Japan instead of Kansas. The pet has since been reunited with its family. (NAN)
