United Airlines: We're Done Flying Pets In Cargo

United Airlines: We're Done Flying Pets In Cargo

United was once renowned for its special products, such as pets.

While Fake's family isn't scheduled to move in the immediate future, she said "many of the people I know are in panic mode".

"An error occurred during connections in Denver for two pets sent to the wrong destinations", United explained in a statement, "We apologize for this mistake and are following up with the vendor kennel where they were kept overnight to understand what happened".

Mesa Airlines announced today an exciting new Career Path Program (CPP) with United Airlines, created to provide qualified current and future United Express pilots at Mesa a clear path to the flight deck with United Airlines.

A blog post by United Airlines says: "We are deeply committed to the safety and comfort of the animals and pets in our care".

"Unfortunately, we do not have commercially contracted passenger missions out of Andersen and are unable to ship pets at this time".

"We are taking this voluntary action to conduct a thorough and systematic review of our PetSafe program and make improvements that will ensure the best possible experience for our customers and their pets", United said in statement posted on its website Tuesday.

Last week, a 10-year-old, 80-pound German Shepard named Irgo flying on United as cargo ended up in Japan instead of Kansas City.

The suspension comes as United reviews its pet transport policies, a process that should be completed by May 1, according to the airline. The dog died March 12 after a flight attendant had the pet and its crate placed in an overhead bin.

There were at least 18 animal deaths reported on United flights a year ago - more than any USA carrier.

Smaller pets can continue to travel in the cabin, and beginning in April, will be identified with brightly-colored bag tags.
