United flight diverted because it accidentally had a dog onboard

United flight diverted because it accidentally had a dog onboard

United flight 3996 from Newark to St. Louis was diverted to Akron, Ohio to drop off the pet.

On Tuesday, the airline apologized to a family after their dog was placed into an overhead bin and died.

The dog was mistakenly loaded on the plane but was later "safely delivered to its owner", she said.

United Airlines has found itself in the middle of yet another dog-related incident this week.

United said in a statement that the flight attendant did not realize the dog was inside the carrier because she did not hear the passenger's warning.

While the flight should have averaged two hours, following the pup's itinerary turned into a four-hour marathon for passengers, who spent roughly an hour and a half on the ground in Akron, a spokesperson for flight-data company Flightradar24 told the Washington Post.

On Wednesday, the airline mistakenly shipped a dog to Japan instead of Kansas City.

Emergency crews have announced Friday that they shifted their focus from an initial rescue mission to a recovery effort. FIU released a statement Thursday afternoon saying university officials were working with police and first responders.

United Airlines had another issue with one of its canine travelers.

On Monday, a French bulldog apparently died after a flight attendant forced the family to load their dog into an overhead compartment.

United Airlines is having a ruff time.

In wake of the incident, prosecutors from the Harris County District Attorney's office in Houston said they are looking into the possibility of animal cruelty charges.

Irgo arrived on Thursday on a United Airlines corporate jet.

A third pet problem in less than a week plagued United Airlines on Friday.
