It’s been a really bad year for United Airlines with a wide variety of negative incidents taking place.
The main headline grabber was a passenger being dragged off of a United Airlines plane back in April. A few days later, a scorpion stung a passenger during a flight. In late June, a baby overheated on a plane stuck on the tarmac. There’s been other incidents too…
Now United is being blamed for a dog’s death.
FOX News reports that “United has the worst record for pet deaths aboard their flights.”
A Houston family is now holding the airline responsible for the death of their 5 year-old King Charles Spaniel.
The family says that their flight to San Francisco was delayed and held on the tarmac for two hours before taking off. During this time, their dog was in the plane’s cargo hold.
United Airlines told FOX News that they “reached out to our customer to offer our condolences and assistance and are conducting a thorough review of this incident.”
What about compensation? I wonder if the family plans to sue the airline over the loss of their pet. I also wonder if the dog’s death is really United’s fault?
