United Flight Rerouted After Airline Realizes Mid-Flight They Put a Dog On the Wrong Plane

  United Flight Rerouted After Airline Realizes Mid-Flight They Put a Dog On the Wrong Plane United Airlines is in the middle of another dog drama, after loading a dog on the wrong plane again. This is the third strike against the airline in one week when it comes to handling passengers’ pets. On Tuesday, news broke of Kokito’s death. The black French bulldog died on an United flight from Houston to New York City after a flight attendant insisted that the owner of the dog, Catalina Robeldo, stow the dog’s carrier, with the canine inside, in an overhead bin for the entirety of the flight. The following day animal lovers learned the airline confused two dogs, a great Dane and a German Shepherd, and erroneously sent one of the pets to Japan when he was supposed to take a much shorter trip to Kansas City. The most recent incident also involves United putting a pet on the wrong plane. According to Today.com, a dog leaving from New Jersey’s Newark airport on Thursday destined for Akron, Ohio, via United was accidentally loaded onto a United plane heading to St. Louis, Missouri. When the airline realized their mistake mid-flight, the plane was re-routed to fix the error. This decision delayed the arrival of the plane, and all of its passengers, to St. Louis, reports Today.com. RELATED: Everything You Need to Know About Traveling on a Plane with Your Dog United Airlines spokesperson Natalie Noonan provided PEOPLE with the following statement about the incident. “United Express flight 3996 from Newark to St. Louis diverted to Akron to drop off a pet that had been loaded onto this flight mistakenly. The pet has been safely delivered to its owner. We provided compensation to all customers on board for the diversion.

This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing

  This Is Why You Should Never, Ever Sleep While a Plane Is Taking Off or Landing You’ve made it. You managed to navigate your way through the world’s largest airport without robot assistance; you breezed through security because you didn’t pack any items that get you flagged by the TSA; and you successfully boarded the plane. Now you’re comfortable in your seat in the (kind of incredibly germ-ridden) cabin, and there’s even a little bit of elbow room, as the flight isn’t fully booked for once. With the hassle behind you, you settle in with your neck pillow, pop some Kenny G on your iPod, and get ready to spend quality time sleeping on a plane.
