United Airlines suspends transport of pets in cargo hold

  • Dog reunited with owners after Japan detour

Last week a German shepherd named Irgo was accidentally sent to Japan, and another United flight was diverted to OH because it was carrying a dog that was put on the wrong plane.

United Airlines said it's suspending a program for transporting pets in cargo holds.

"This suspension does not affect pets that travel with us in the aircraft's cabin", United said.

The airline will review the procedures for its PetSafe programme until May 1, including which breeds of dogs it will accept, according to a statement on Tuesday (March 20). He said the airline would consult independent experts in pet safety and that the airline is not ending the program.

Ron McCallum is a seasoned pilot and aviation attorney weighing in on United's decision to temporarily halt its pet-shipping business. (The dog was flown back in a private jet.) Another dog, bound for Akron, Ohio, was mistakenly loaded onto a flight from Newark, New Jersey, to St. Louis. The detour added an additional two hours to what is normally a two-hour flight; United said its provided compensation to the passengers on board, but did not release specific details. United said it compensated the passengers on that flight for the diversion, although it's unclear how they were compensated.

Monrad praises United as an excellent airline but remains critical of the company's animal transportation policies - especially as it pertains to the recent cabin death of a French Bulldog and what she calls negligent actions of the flight attendant.

The airline carries more animals in cargo than any other US carrier - about 138,000 previous year.

Last week, United also announced that it will start issuing "bright colored bag tags" for passengers bringing small animals into the cabin of airplanes.

In 2017, 18 animals died in United's care, three-fourths of all such deaths on US airlines.

Hobart would not predict what might change for pets on United after the PetSafe review was completed, but he emphasized that the goal was to make the experience more seamless for travelers of all species.
