United Airlines calls dog's death in overhead bin a 'tragic accident'

United Airlines feel sorry after Dog dead in the flight 1432018

A little dog died on a United Airlines flight after an attendant forced the animal's owner to put the pet in the cabin's overhead bin, and the airline said on Tuesday it was taking full responsibility.

Just recently a flight attendant of the airline kept a crate that had a dog in it in the overhead bin of the aircraft.

The animal cruelty division of the Harris County, Texas district attorney's office said in a statement issued late Wednesday that it is cooperating with the county's animal cruelty task force to probe the incident.

The dog, named Kokito, who was traveling in a TSA-approved kennel, was placed into the bin by Robledo following the instructions of the flight attendant, according to published reports.

- "I don't want anybody to suffer the same thing we're suffering right now", said Sophia Robledo.

The controversy involved a French bulldog that was in a small carrier on a flight from Houston to NY.

Kennedy said he plans to file a bill on Thursday that would prohibit airlines from placing animals in overhead bins. "Any time there is an incident with animals we do a thorough review".

"My dog is like my kid so it made me angry that that would be considered an option considering there's probably no air up there", said Rafidi. The airline promised an investigation "to prevent this".

According to United passenger Catalina Robledo, the flight attendant told her she would have to put Kokito into the storage bin above the seats because his carrier was sticking into the aisle.

Alaska Airlines, which carries only 17 percent fewer animals, had just two deaths a year ago.

A USA senator is now asking the airline to explain the high rate of pet deaths in their aircrafts.

"If you read the literature, they tell you that you're not entitled to have your animal with you on the same flight that you're on", said Roe.

"They had no idea where the dog was.I burst into tears instantly because this has just all been a whirlwind". She later discovered that due to a mix-up, Irgo had been mistakenly put on a United Airlines flight to Japan.

- The cabin is safer than the cargo hold.

In comparison, he says Delta and American each reported two animal deaths.

The report found that of the 24 animals that have died 18 did so while being handled by United.

Some pets were deemed to have died of natural causes, others from heart problems or gastric dilation, a condition associated with eating too much. Gremminger said the owner was preoccupied by her infant during the flight and did not check on the pet, which fell eerily silent after barking during takeoff and as the plane ascended to its cruising altitude.
