Family reunited with dog that United Airlines mistakenly sent to Japan

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.

She has learned greetings in numerous pupils' 35 languages including Gujarati and Tamil to welcome parents. But she said school could make a great positive difference - particular through creative subjects.

On Monday, Kokito the Bulldog puppy suffocated in the overhead bin after being placed there by his owner who claims she was forced by United Airlines flight attendants to stow him away.

The airline provided compensation to all passengers on the flight, United said in a statement, though did not provide details.

And the Harris County District Attorney's Office, in Texas, told a local news outlet that its animal-cruelty task force would conduct an investigation into the death.

Earlier this week, 10-year-old German shepherd named Irgo was sent to Japan instead of Kansas after a mix-up on a United flight.

According to USA Today, Kara and Joseph Swindle and their two children are moving from Salem to Kansas City. Hours later, she learned that he had been flown to Japan, a 16-hour journey without food, water, or medicine to treat an ear infection he was suffering from. "I want to make sure that they actually do something to stop all of this and make sure that no one has to go through this".
