Another Dog Dies This Time Aboard Delta Air Lines

Another dog died aboard a commercial flight, this time with Delta Air Lines.

Alejandro the Pomeranian was in the cargo hold of the commercial airline from a flight that took off in Phoenix and was supposed to land in New Jersey with a stopover in Detroit.

When the Delta Air Lines jet landed in the Motor City, the staff claimed that the 8-year-old pom was alive, but that unfortunately he died during the transfer to the connecting flight.

The cause of the dog’s death has yet to be established. Delta said in a statement that it is in the process of conducting a thorough investigation to find out what exactly happened to the dog aboard one of its planes. The airline also stated they are concerned that such a thing “will not happen again.”

Delta Air Lines also said it is working with the dog’s family to support them in this tough time. The airline has also offered a free necropsy to have dog evaluated.

Alejandro was owned by an unmarried couple on their way to relocating to New York. Evan Oshan, the lawyer for the dog’s family, said that Delta has been “pushing people to put their dogs in the cargo hold rather than cabin”, possibly since there are numerous service dogs onboard that “the passenger areas resemble a kennel.”

Delta is insisting, on the other hand, that it was the choice of the passengers to place their dog in cargo, and that they did not “push” them to make the choice.

Remember when Pet Owners use to board their pets for vacations?

Remember when Pet Owners DID NOT carry Fluffy in to dinning areas like some wacked out Snob.

Listen People Jets fly at 36,000+/- Ft.

Sub zero Temps, and no breathing air outside.

Cargo Holds are NOT passenger areas.

Cargo Holds are not as environmentally controlled like the Passenger cabins.

Cargo Holds are for Baggage.
