Dog dies in overhead bin on United Airlines flight

A family's French bulldog apparently suffocated during a flight from Houston to NY on Monday when a United Airlines flight attendant forced them to place the pet in an overhead compartment for the three-hour trip.

The dog reportedly was in a carrier meant to be stored under a seat.

Another passenger, June Lara, wrote he was sitting behind the family during the exchange. "We assume full responsiblity for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them". "They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed".

Another passenger on the flight posted a photo on Twitter of the dog's owner and children after the plane had arrived in NY.

BuzzFeed News reported on Tuesday that United Airlines confirmed the dog's death and said it was "a tragic accident that should never have occurred". I cried with them three minutes later as she sobbed over his lifeless body.


"It was clearly a dog and while the customer was adamant about leaving it under the seat, the attendant pushed her to do so", she wrote in the first of a series of tweets. My heart broke with theirs as I realized he was gone'.

"I witnessed a United flight attendant instruct a woman to put her dog carrier with live dog in an overhead bin", she told One Mile at a Time, a travel website. Lara claimed that flight attendants said the dog would be safe inside the compartment for three hours during the flight.

Last year, 18 animals died while being transported on United - there were six cases on all other USA carriers combined, according to the Department of Transportation. Although nothing can replace the dog, it's good to know United is working to get to the bottom of the situation.

According to United's website, its policy for onboard pets is: "A pet traveling in a cabin must be carried in an approved hard-sided or soft-sided kennel".

A spokesperson for United said the airline will investigate the dog's death "to prevent this from ever happening again". Earlier in the year, Simon the three-foot-long rabbit also died after a United Airlines flight.
