Puppy dies in overhead bin on United Airlines flight”

According to Fox News, a flight attendant on a flight from Houston to New York City forced the owner of a black French bulldog to store the animal and its TSA-compliant carrier in an overhead bin during the flight.

A woman traveling with a teenage girl and an infant boarded Flight 1284 from Houston to NY. yesterday (March 12) with a 10-month-old French bulldog inside a TSA-approved carrier, according to fellow passenger Maggie Gremminger, who was sitting behind them. "They INSISTED that the puppy be locked up for three hours without any kind of airflow".

United said it was taking responsibility for the incident on the Monday night flight, saying pets should never be put in the overhead storage compartment.

"They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed", Lara wrote. "There was no movement as his family called his name".

"The flight attendant told the passenger that her bag was blocking part of the aisle", passenger Maggie Gremminger told People. I held her baby as the mother attempted to resuscitate their 10 month old puppy.

"I want to help this woman and her daughter", she tweeted. "My heart broke with theirs as I realized he was gone".

According to United's in-cabin pet policy, a pet must be carried in an approved hard-sided or soft-sided kennel which must fit completely under the seat in front of the customer.

The French bulldog was traveling Monday with its owner and her children from Houston to NY.

"At the end of the flight the dog was found dead in the carrier. My heart is broken". "They lost their dog because of an @united flight attendant".

United said it was investigating what happened to prevent it from ever happening again.

United has suffered a string of incidents that generated bad publicity in the past two years, including the violent removal of a passenger from a United Express plane to make room for a crew member, and the death of a giant rabbit - its Iowa owners sued the airline, which they said cremated the animal to destroy evidence about the cause of death.
