此事立即引发全美媒体热炒，CNN今早报道，Sen. John Kennedy is calling out United Airlines, demanding an “immediate explanation” of the death of a dog on a flight this week, and saying other animals have suffered while in United’s care.
This was a tragic accident that should never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin. We assume full responsibility for this tragedy and express our deepest condolences to the family and are committed to supporting them. We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again. （United Airlines @Twitter)
Your pet can travel with you on the same flight as checked baggage, as long as it’s at least three months old.
ANA （全日空）的提示最温馨：ANA will handle your pet with the utmost care so that it can travel as comfortably as possible. However, as the conditions on an aircraft are very different to a pet’s everyday environment, transporting your pet by air may affect their health. There is a possibility of pets being left in a weakened physical condition or even dying.
