Family demands answer after dog dies on Delta flight

Another dog took off on a commercial airliner and when the plane landed... it was dead

A lawyer representing the owner of a dog that died while traveling with Delta Air Lines says a bloody blanket was among the Pomeranian's belongings.

A pet owner and his girlfriend want answers after their dog was found dead in his kennel following a Delta flight.

Eight-year-old Alejandro was travelling with his owners from Phoenix to New Jersey, where the couple is moving home to.

When the dog was checked on again between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., Alejandro was dead, according to Dellegrazie's attorney, Evan Oshan.

In an email statement provided to Global News, the airline said it is investigating the death.

In March, a French bulldog called Kokito died on a United Airlines flight from Houston to NY after a flight attendant told the owner to put the dog, which was in a carrier, in the overhead locker. "This is essentially their family member who died".

The new report shows that 95 percent of teens own a smartphone and 45 percent say they are online on a "near-constant basis". The report shows that eight-in-ten teen girls (83%) play video games whereas the male teens recorded 92%.

A spokeswoman for Delta said the dog was discovered with vomit and fluids in the cage, according to CNN. When the attendant checked two hours later, the dog was dead, WXYZ reports. That's exactly what happened, and somebody has to be responsible for it.

The airline offered to have a necropsy performed on Alejandro, though the dog is now in the family's possession.

Delta is not among the airlines that recently changed their policies about transporting pets in cargo in Phoenix and other desert cities. "He was in their care and they didn't take care of him", he continued.

"Delta said it launched an immediate investigation and "...offered to have Alejandro evaluated by a veterinarian ... to find out more about why this may have occurred".

The animal suddenly died in Detroit, and now he wants to know what happened. Pets traveling in the airplane cabin are meant to be stowed under the seat in front of the owner.

In 2017, according to data from the Department of Transportation, out of the 506,994 animals transported by US airlines, there were 24 pet deaths, 15 injured and one loss.
