Dog dies on United flight after being placed in overhead bin

The owner had brought her puppy in a carrier according to United rules but should have been placed under her seat

A dog died on a Unite Airlines flight Monday after a flight attendant forced a passenger to put the pet in an overhead bin.

"Tonight I was on a plane where I witnessed a @united flight attendant instruct a passenger to place her dog carrier (with dog) in the overhead compartment", Gremminger said.

The woman initially placed the carrier under the seat in front of her, but the flight attendant told her she needed to put the bag, including the dog, in the overhead compartment for the entirety of the flight. "She made sure the flight attendant understood there was her dog and when the flight attendant still pushed her". I cried with them three minutes later as she sobbed over his lifeless body.

Gremminger told the travel blog One Mile at a Time: "By the end of the flight, the dog was dead". "They INSISTED that the puppy be locked up for three hours without any kind of airflow". "They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed".

"There was some back and forth before finally the flight attendant convinced her to move the carrier to the bin above", she said. He said the airline refunded the tickets purchased for the dog owner and her two children and the fee that they paid to bring a pet on board - typically $200.
