What the Hell

On a Monday night trip from Houston to New York’s LaGuardia Airport, a  United flight attendant made a passenger put her French Bulldog puppy in  an overhead bin, despite the fact that it was traveling in a  TSA-approved pet carrier that could have been stowed beneath a seat. The  dog reportedly barked for most of the flight until it died, prompting  widespread outrage on social media. 

In a statement issued to The Points  Guy, a United spokesperson said, “This was a tragic accident that should  never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead  bin. We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our  deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them.  We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever  happening again.” Many airlines and veterinarians advise owners of  short-nosed dog breeds like French Bulldogs to avoid flying with their  pet because they are more prone to respiratory problems on flights.
