United Airlines courts controversy once again as dog dies on flight UA1284

Proactive Investors Wednesday, 14 March 2018
Shares in United Airlines owner United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL) flew lower in pre-market trading after the airline’s public image took another blow. A dog died whilst on board flight UA1284 from Houston to New York after a flight attendant allegedly forced its owner to store the animal and its carrier in an overhead bin for the duration of the four-hour flight, despite the pet being in a TSA-compliant carrier. I want to help this woman and her daughter. They lost their dog because of an @united flight attendant. My heart is broken. pic.twitter.com/mjXYAhxsAq — MaggieGremminger (@MaggieGrem) March 13, 2018 In a statement, United apologized for the “tragic accident” that killed the dog – a black French bulldog called Kokito – and accepted “full responsibility” for the incident. “We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again,” the airline added. FACEBOOK: Post contains images some readers may find upsetting It is not the first time that United has come under fire for its treatment of passengers – and now their pets. Almost a year ago the company made front-page news when a doctor was forcibly hauled off an overbooked flight from Chicago after he refused to give up his seat in exchange for a US$800 voucher. Shortly before that, two women were reportedly turned away at the gate of their United flight for wearing leggings. UAL shares were down 0.6% to US$72.16 shortly before the opening bell in New York.
