I was thinking to myself the other day that it had been a while since United Airlines broke anything. Have they finally started to shape up or have I just not been on the ball enough, I wondered. Of course, this being United, the answer is a resounding column B.
An English Springer Spaniel named Hendrix ended up taking a serious detour on his way from New Jersey to Phoenix this week.
He ended up in Ireland after being put on the wrong flight.
United Airlines spokesperson Megan McCarthy says the 6-year-old dog was travelling in cargo Thursday when the mix-up happened. When the error was realized, she says the airline took immediate steps to get Hendrix back to his owner.
On the bright side, at least they didn’t kill him. He was safely returned and his owner was offered a full refund.
