Kudos to the AA
pilot! As a dog owner/lover, his actions are wonderful to hear about. Air Canada has taken wonderful care of my dog, Oliver, on the couple of flights he flew. I was nervous as hell checking my furry four-pawed buddy in for the flights, but "Ollie" arrived a-ok. The AC
guys were great with him on both occasions (I strongly suspect the best canine air service comes from fellow dog owners).
"But then again a few years ago a freind of mine took his Lab from MSY
and he missed his connection in ATL
due to weather. DL
left his dog on the ramp for 5 hours. By the time the poor animal got to BOS
, it was never the same again."
"did he do this specifically for the dog? or did he do it because it's standard procedure to divert in such a senereo?"
And what if he DID do this specifically for the dog? Is the animals life and wellbeing not worth it to YOU?
