  • Irgo a 10-year-old German shepherd was mistakenly flown to Japan instead of Kansas City Mo

Maggie Gremminer said the cabin was being prepared for take-off when a United Airlines flight attendant allegedly instructed a female passenger traveling with a teen, a young baby, and a French Bulldog in a carrier to place her pet in the overhead bin.

CBS News reported on the story, which went viral after a passenger on the flight posted a photo of the dog, who was named Papicito, after it died.

United Airlines issued an apology to the passenger, saying, in part, that the dog should never have been placed in the overhead bin and "we assume full responsibility for this tragedy".

The official cause of the dog's death has not been confirmed.

"The kennel must fit completely under the seat in front of the customer and remain there at all times".

Eighteen died on board, compared to just two on Delta and American Airlines flights. He was meant to live a long life filling that family's days with that special joy that only a dog can bring. "Her daughter was also crying", she said.

Gremminger, who could not be reached for comment Tuesday, wrote on Facebook the woman and those around her must have thought there was air flow in the overhead bins.

"They INSISTED that the puppy be locked up for three hours without any kind of airflow". My heart broke with theirs as I realized he was gone'.

"They assured the safety of the family's pet so wearily, the mother agreed", Lara wrote.

The Humane Society of the US says air travel can be risky for pets and especially unsafe for brachycephalic breeds - such as pugs or bulldogs, whose short nasal passages make them vulnerable to oxygen deprivation and heat stroke.

The ten-month-old puppy boarded the plane in a standard pet carrier and was placed under the seat in front of its family, in a fashion most flights with animals request. There is no excuse for the pain this family is suffering'.

United Airlines say they are now investigating the animal's death and have apologized for the 'accident'. I didn't question the flight attendant, but I could have.
