It hasn’t been a great couple of weeks for pets flying on United Airlines. On the heels of one dog dying after a flight attendant forced it to travel in an overhead bin on a Houston-to-New York flight, United Airlines now says it’s investigating after mistakenly flying a Kansas family’s dog to….. Japan! Kara Swindle and her two children flew from Oregon to Kansas City, Missouri, Tuesday, but when they went to a cargo facility to pick up 10-year-old Irgo, a German shepherd, they were instead given a Great Dane. That’s when the family learned Irgo had been put on a flight to Japan, where the Great Dane was supposed to go. Oops! Airline officials in Japan put Irgo on a flight back to Kansas City. It isn’t clear when the dog will arrive.
