A dog has died after the flight attendant forced the owner to put the pet in the Cabin’s overhead bin on Monday. A woman flying in a United airlines flight 1284 with children and a small dog was pressured by a flight attendant to put her pet in the overhead bin during the three-and-a-half-hour flight.
The woman wanted to keep the dog under her seat on United Flight #1284 from Houston to New York, but the flight attendant insisted that dog should be kept in the overhead bin.
“At the end of the flight, the woman found her dog, deceased. She sat in the airplane aisle on the floor crying, and all of surrounding passengers were utterly stunned,” a passenger, Gremminger wrote in his tweet.
Another passenger said, “the passengers heard the dog barking for part of the flight,… but died”
“My heart is broken. I am in shock and don’t know how I’ll sleep…” passenger Maggie posted on her facebook
In 2017 alone there were 18 animals died while being transported on United and 6 on all other US carries combined, according to the Department of Transportation.
