Family reunited with dog that United Airlines mistakenly sent to Japan

Flight 3996 was carrying 33 passengers from Newark, New Jersey, to St. Louis, but the pet was due to fly from New Jersey to Akron.

A United flight headed to St. Louis was diverted to Akron, Ohio, after the airline mistakenly loaded a pet onto the flight.

The incident was United's third dog-related mishap in one week; fortunately, this time, it led to a happier conclusion than the first.

A dog died when a passenger was ordered by a flight attendant to place her dog in an overhead bin during a flight from Houston to New York's Laguardia Airport.

The family was reconnected with their dog on Saturday. Robledo initially stored the carrier under the seat in front of her but was later told by a flight attendant to move it, with Kokito inside, to the overhead bin.
