Puppy Dies After Flight Attendant Insists On Stowing Him In Overhead Luggage

The airlines told Swindle that because Irgo could be on an international flight the dog might be required to be quarantined in Japan up to two weeks

After the flight, the woman was horrified to find the dog, which was reportedly not checked on during the flight, had died.

But it is unclear why the carrier was not placed under a seat, he said. 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.

The passenger had the black French bulldog in a standard pet carrier, which she initially placed under the seat in front of her, according to Gremminger.

The Points Guy reports that during their flight, an attendant insisted that the woman put her dog, which was held in a TSA-approved pet carrier, in an overhead bin for the rest of the flight.

Amazon has today recalled six different models of its AmazonBasics portable power banks, including a total of 260,000 units. Amazon is now sending out emails to customers who purchased these power bans to inform them of the recall.

The dog suffocated to death during the three-hour flight, and United Airlines says it takes full responsibility while it investigates the accident.

According to a Facebook post by passenger June Lara, the dog belonged to a family, which included a young girl, a toddler and their mother on board the flight.

"I held her baby as the mother attempted to resuscitate their 10-month-old puppy", he said.

"She sat in the airplane aisle on the floor crying, and all of [the] surrounding passengers were utterly stunned", Ms Gremminger said.

"She said that she did not know there was a dog in the bag and if so she never would have instructed it to be put in the bin above", Gremminger said.

"The overwhelming majority of dogs and cats have no incidents", United spokesman Charles Hobart said last month in an interview about the airline's accommodations for pets.

Last year, United lost one billion dollars market value in just one day after flight attendants dragged a 69-year-old doctor off a flight to make room for their own staff.

The carrier has apologised for the tragic loss, saying "We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them".
