12 times United was America's most hated airline

Russell Knight | 19 March, 2018, 02:09

The dog was on a flight from Newark to St. Louis, when it was supposed to be on a plane to Akron, Ohio, according to the airline.

The flight, which was carrying 33 passengers, left Newark, NJ on Thursday morning and was bound for St. Louis, MO, however, once the mistake was identified, the plane diverted to Akron, OH to drop the pet off at its final destination. United Airlines confirmed the incident to the news station, which did not identify the type of animal or indicate if the pet was loaded into cargo or brought into the main cabin. "We provided compensation to all customers on board for the diversion", the airline said in a statement on Friday.

The mix-up was the third incident involving a pet on a United Airlines flight in just a week.

Now United is claiming the flight attendant didn't realise the dog was inside the carrier when she placed it in the overhead locker.

Cataline Robledo and her 11-year-old daughter and 2-month-old son brought their family dog onto a flight from Houston to NY in a pet carrier.

A German shepherd that went on an unscheduled flight trip to Japan has been a guest on several television shows this week in the U.S. His owner, Kara Swindle, was flying from OR to Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday.

United requires pet owners to provide health certificates issued by a vet within 10 days of travel and proof of rabies vaccine for all dogs entering the United States, Hobart said.

Somehow Irgo got switched with another dog in Denver. The airline came under intense scrutiny after a French bulldog puppy was forced into an overhead bin on a Houston-to-New York flight on Monday and died on the plane.

The airline took responsibility.

United Airlines is having a ruff time.

But we're now up to three disturbing incidents in one week, including the tragic death of one animal. But none of that makes up for trauma two small children suffered knowing their beloved pet died in the bin above their heads on a flight. Turns out United has a particularly awful track record when it comes to safely transporting pets.
