In a statement, United said this was "a tragic accident that should never have occurred, as pets should never be placed in the overhead bin".

Passengers reported that they did not know the dog had died during the flight until they landed at LaGuardia Airport.

A dog was found dead after being stuffed in a travel bag and stored in an overhead bin during a United Airlines flight.

But Gremminger said in a photo on Facebook that a flight attendant forced the dog's owner to put the carrier and its occupant in the overhead compartment. "I assumed there must be ventilation as surely the flight attendant wouldn't have instructed this otherwise I heard the dog barking a little and we didn't realize it was barking a cry for help". "There was some back and forth before finally the flight attendant convinced her to move the carrier to the bin above".

"There was no sound as we landed and opened his kennel", Lara wrote. I held her baby as the mother attempted to resuscitate their 10 month old puppy. However, the flight attendants of flight UA1284 felt that the innocent animal was better off crammed inside the overhead container without air and water. A flight attendant ordered the passenger to store the dog in her carrier, passenger June Lara wrote in a Facebook post. The flight attendant then came, appeared "frazzled" and said she had not known there was an animal in the carrier, she added. "We are thoroughly investigating what occurred to prevent this from ever happening again".

The airline's pet policy states, "A pet traveling in cabin must be carried in an approved hard-sided or soft-sided kennel".
