United plane diverted after ANOTHER dog mishap

Oh boy, it’s happened again.

United Airlines have somehow managed to put yet ANOTHER dog on the wrong flight, this time, causing the flight to change course.


The flight, originally scheduled to travel from Newark to St. Louis was diverted when crew members realised they loaded a dog into the cargo that should have been going to Akron, Ohio, reports CBS.

The flight diverted to Akron and the pooch was safely reunited with its owners.

United have been copping a fair bit of flack lately after they accidentally sent a German shepherd to Japan, instead of Kansas City last Wednesday.

Not to mention the horrific news that broke last Monday about the French bulldog who died after being placed in an overhead bin during a three-and-a-half hour trip.

Perhaps this is a cruel set of coincidences the airline is suffering by the hand of, or maybe it’s time United pulls its socks up and retrains its staff in pet handling affairs.

Either way, we’re just happy for the opportunity to write another story about dogs.
