United Airlines Accidentally Sends Dog To Japan Instead Of Kansas

United Airlines Accidentally Sends Dog To Japan Instead Of Kansas

The family dog was supposed to be eating kibble in Kansas City, but when Kara Swindle, whose family was moving from OR to Wichita, Kansas, showed up in the airport cargo facility Tuesday night, a attractive Great Dane puppy popped his head out of Irgo's kennel instead.

A United spokesman told KGW the incident happened during a connection error in Denver. We have notified our costumers that their pets have arrived safely and will arrange to return the pets to them as soon as possible.

United Airlines is facing another pet scandal after they mistakenly flew a German shepherd to Japan instead of Kansas.

Instead, the family was met with a Great Dane they had never seen before.

But when Swindle and her family landed in Kansas City and went to pick up Irgo from the airline kennels, she discovered that a Great Dane was sitting in the kennel labeled with Irgo's paperwork.

Joseph and Kara Swindle, along with their two young children, were flying from OR to Kansas City Tuesday so they could sign the paperwork for their new house in Wichita, Kansas, the next morning.

She also has no desire to go to Japan.

The airline originally told Swindle that because Irgo was on an worldwide flight, the dog might be required to be quarantined in Japan up to two weeks. So insane, right? "I just want to know where my dog is".

Airline officials in Japan said they have put Irgo on a flight back to Kansas City but it is unclear when the dog will arrive. "I don't know what else to do at this point. She sat in the airplane aisle on the floor crying, and all of surrounding passengers were utterly stunned", fellow passenger Maggie Gremminger wrote in a series of tweets detailing the incident. I can't cry anymore. "What is going on?" said Heather Asher. "I've cried too much".

He also will be flying in the main cabin on the way back, hopefully, to Wichita.

This is not the first time United has come under scrutiny for its treatment of animals.

United Airlines can't seem to get things right when it comes to pets on their flights. "We apologize for this mistake and are following up with the vendor kennel where they were kept overnight to understand what happened".
