Olivia Munn blasts United after puppy death

United came under fire for Kokito's death. The airline lost 18 animals during transportation last year

"However, our flight attendant did not hear or understand her, and did not knowingly place the dog in the overhead bin", the airline said in a statement.

Hobart said the airline investigates every injury or death to an animal in its care.

Something was not quite right with Prince Maddox. A witness said a flight attendant had ordered the pet owner to put the dog in the compartment before the plane took off.

A vet later discovered Prince, a cross between a domestic Bengal cat and an African serval, had sustained a broken hip during the flight.

Be that as it may, United's expression of remorse for this error comes after the rationale passing of puppy, Kokito, on the flight from Houston to NY on Monday.

United has repeatedly apologized and says it's taking full responsibility for what happened. Even on United, there was only one death for roughly every 4,500 animals transported past year.

"The overwhelming majority (of deaths), according to medical experts, were due to a pre-existing medical condition or the animal wasn't properly acclimated to its crate", said United spokesman Charles Hobart. A week of headlines in British tabloids, such as "Now United's killing fluffy bunnies!", left its reputation in one of its most valuable foreign markets in tatters.

The change, however, would not have helped in the case of Igo, a 10-year-old German Shepherd who was flying to Kansas City, Missouri with his family.

Alaska Airlines carried nearly 115,000 animals past year and reported just two deaths and one lost animal, the data show. Doubling down on her comment on Twitter, pet adoption advocate Munn writes, "I won't fly @United again. The second-worst offender, American, had 0.87 incidents per 10,000". According to fellow travelers, the #flight attendant was very insistent that the puppy be stored in the overhead locker and reassured the family that their pet would be safe.

"We don't want the same thing to happen (to other pet owners)", Sophia told WNBC.

College student Belen Aldecosea told People magazine that she'd been assured by Spirit Airlines that Pebbles, her pet hamster, could come on board as an emotional support animal. But the United employee didn't give her a choice. While he doesn't see Munoz or President Scott Kirby losing their jobs, he said, "Any one of these instances are awful on their own, but you link them all together and you realize you've got a problem".

United says passengers travelling with pets will have to attach a colourful tag to their carrier.
