Family pets: Warning! Don't fly United!

Postby Marie » Wed Mar 14, 2018 7:18 pm

The latest pet died just a few days ago due to being placed in the overhead storage compartment at the insistence of the flight attendant. :-(

One U.S. senator's response:

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.

Oh no! United AGAIN! :x

“An error occurred during connections in Denver for two pets sent to the wrong destinations,” United said in a statement on Thursday. “We have notified our customers that their pets have arrived safely and are on their way to be reunited with their owners.”

During the Denver connection, the German Shepherd, named Irgo, was scheduled to transfer to a flight arriving at Kansas City International Airport on Tuesday, but was mistakenly shipped to Japan instead while a Great Dane was sent to Kansas City.

“The German Shepherd is currently enroute from Tokyo to Wichita. The Great Dane arrived safely in Tokyo and is awaiting its connecting flight to Hiroshima,” United said.
