  • German shepherd was mistakenly flown to Japan on a United Airlines flight

On Thursday, a United Express flight from Newark to St. Louis landed in Akron, Ohio, to bring a pet to its proper destination, an airline spokeswoman, Natalie Noonan, told NJ Advance Media via email Saturday.

Kara Swindle paid to ship Irgo as cargo on a flight from OR to Kansas, but instead the German shepherd was put on a flight to Japan.

It was the third mishap involving a dog this week. Turns out United has a particularly disgusting track record when it comes to safely transporting pets.

United Airlines can't seem to get a doggone thing right.

Flight 3996 was carrying 33 passengers from Newark, New Jersey, to St. Louis, but the pet was due to fly from New Jersey to Akron.

Kara Swindle and her two children took a United flight Tuesday from OR to Kansas City, Missouri, during a move to Wichita, Kansas.

Coutinho: Neymar's return to Barcelona 'would be awesome'
Speaking at the Neymar Junior charity centre in Praia Grande, Sao Paulo, his father said: " Neymar already has a future at PSG". Meanwhile, the 26-year-old is now injured, and continues to undergo his recovery back in Brazil.

According to United, compensation was offered to all passengers as a result of the diversion.

On Tuesday, the airline apologized to a family after their dog was placed into an overhead bin and died.

The airline faced fierce backlash and massive criticism when a customer on Monday reported a flight attendant told her to store her 10-month-old French bulldog, Kokito, in the overhead compartment for the duration of her flight.

When Swindle and her children went to the cargo facility to pick up their dog, they were given a Great Dane puppy and not their beloved German Shepherd.

Prosecutors in Houston are investigating to determine if criminal charges are warranted, AP said.
