Olivia Munn vowed to never fly United Airlines again and encouraged others to follow suit after a dog’s death, according to TMZ Wednesday.
“I’ll never fly United,” the 37-year-old actress told the paparazzi at LAX, after they asked her thoughts about the death of a French bulldog stuffed into an overhead bin.
“I mean, if they can’t take care of all their passengers and the animals. I mean, I don’t think anyone should fly them,” she added. “I just don’t think that we should fly United anymore.”
Munn also shared that she “feels so bad” for the family that lost their pet.
Earlier this week, the airline made headlines after a flight attendant insisted that the family put their beloved dog in the overhead compartment. After a long period of “panicked barking” the dog passed away.
According to an earlier report by the outlet, the family could sue the airline for the value of the animal and get money for “emotional distress suffered by the owner.” The owner could also receive another $25,000 in punitive damages if a jury rules that the animal died as a result of abuse or neglect.
Last year, United Airlines also found themselves in trouble after a doctor was violently dragged off a plane by officers. Two officers were fired and another resigned six months after the shocking incident was captured on video.
