Uh oh, dog who caused plane diversion may be terrier

ABC News reports:

You can add dog bites to the list of things passengers and flight attendants have to contend with at 30,000 feet.

That was the case this morning on board US Airways flight 522 when a small dog described as a terrier travelling in the passenger cabin was let out of its carrier by its elderly owner. The dog promptly bit a passenger and a flight attendant.

US Airways said that the passenger was expressly told not to open the carrier door.

  1. Couldn’t have been a Scottie…! I hope this doesn’t spoil it for other animals being brought in the cabin instead of the hold! I may have said before that we brought our Teagan from the UK to the US when she emigrated, in the cabin with us and did take her out for a little while just to sit on our laps. No incidents and people around complimented us on how well-behaved she was!
