Dog sent overseas from OR by mistake returned to Kansas family

Dog sent overseas from OR by mistake returned to Kansas family

The flight attendant said she didn't know there was a dog in the carrier. And up popped this Great Dane instead of my German shepherd.

Noonan declined to say if the company is creating or modifying regulations after the row of dog-related mishaps.

Despite the mix-up, the Swindle family was all smiles as they reunited with their dog at the Wichita airport Thursday night.

It's been a ruff week for United Airlines.

Then on Tuesday, another case of mistaken canine identity occurred on a United flight, sending a pet owner into a frenzy when she discovered a Great Dane in the place of her German Shepard, Irgo, in a facility at the Kansas City airport.

United Airlines is once again facing criticism for its treatment of animals - this time for sending a beloved family pet to the wrong country.

Irgo is heading back to his intended destination via private charter, but his guardians are concerned about his ability to survive another long haul flight of at least 16 hours. "We apologize for this mistake and are following up with the vendor kennel where they were kept overnight to understand what happened".

Kokito is the 10-month-old French bulldog ordered by a flight attendant to be placed in overhead storage for the entirety of a recent United flight from Houston to NY. "They're living, breathing, sentient things that are capable of suffering, capable of pain and capable of dying and they can not be treated as inanimate objects", advocate Constance Marino said.

United Airlines have an extremely poor record with animal welfare. The pet was delivered safely to its owners and all passengers on the flight were compensated, United said. "This visual tag will further help our flight attendants identify pets in-cabin".
