We all have heard of pet flights. People take along their pets like cats, dogs, rabbits, etc. on the flight! But have you ever heard of someone trying to carry a peacock along with them on a flight! The woman who hasn’t been identified, was traveling from Newark Liberty International Airport and expressed her desire to take along a beautiful ’emotional-support’ bird.
But the United Airlines didn’t allow her to take the bird along with her on the flight as it was against their rules and regulations. Not long ago, Delta declared it would force more tightly directions on help creatures, provoking different carriers to reevaluate their own guidelines.
However, it wasn’t those progressions which provoked United Airlines to deny the peacock its seat. A year ago, the aircraft confronted a PR bad dream when a celebrated bunny kicked the bucket on one of their flights.
Simon, the 90cm-long mainland monster rabbit, achieved a reputation as the child of Darius, the world’s biggest bunny – and Simon was relied upon to assume control from his father’s heavy award.
However, tragically, Simon was discovered dead in the freight hold of a United Airlines plane when the flight landed at Chicago’s O’Hare – yes, truly – airplane terminal from London Heathrow.
United Airlines told Fox News in a statement:
This animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.
The airline last year landed up in a trouble when a bunny passed away on the flight.
Simon, the 90cm-long mainland monster rabbit, achieved a reputation as the child of Darius, the world’s biggest bunny – and Simon was relied upon to assume control from his father’s strong award.
However, tragically, Simon was discovered dead in the freight hold of a United Airlines plane when the flight touched base at Chicago’s O’Hare – yes, truly – air terminal from London Heathrow. Insights on the US Department of Transportation state, there were 35 detailed creature passings on US carriers in 2015 – 14 of those happened on the United flights.
The BBC reports, all through 2015, United conveyed 97,156 creatures, which means there were 2.37 occurrences for every 10,000 creatures transported amid the period. This is the most elevated rate seen on any US carrier, as indicated by the information.
In a statement sent to the BBC, United said:
We were saddened to hear this news. The safety and well-being of all the animals that travel with us are of the utmost importance to United Airlines and our PetSafe team.We have been in contact with our customer and have offered assistance. We are reviewing this matter.
