Well at least United didn't kill this dog. .... They just mistakenly sent it to Japan, instead of Kansas.

I hear you, but after all the stories of any defiance of authority ending up with a shoeing and in cuffs, you can't blame them. It's the Millgram Experiment in action.

Putting these two quotes together, she should never have been allowed to board with a newborn AND a pet carrier.

As is so often the case, I don't think we're getting all the facts.
Not on United domestically unless one pays to upgrade to Economy Plus seating. There are no bulkhead seats on United's domestic fleet open to regular economy folks.

Requires one to pay the higher economy fare and then upgrade. Basic economy fares are not eligible for Economy +.

We would need to know what row and what fare class she was flying under.

Plus with a pet carrier the gate agent should never have let her board if she was indeed sitting in a bulk head row.

Regardless the flight attendant screwed up by even suggesting a passenger place a live animal in the overhead.

If it did not fit under the seat a gate agent should have been called and the issue dealt with same if the carrier didn't fit under the seat a gate agent should have been notified to come and deal with the situation.

Problem is when you are on a plane you have to abide with what the flight attendants ask...or else...

Remember the doctor who refused to move out of his seat a few months ago??

I would exit the plane before I would mistreat my dog.

Good job the flight wasn't going to Korea or it might have ended up in the galley.

That's one way to get it to fit under the seat.

I would stand back and watch with amusement if they tried that with my pup.

If it was in the air? Although I don’t know whether this happened before takeoff.

I agree with you...my dog is part of my family and I would not let her be mistreated by anyone.
