Dog destined for Kansas flown to Japan via United Airlines

Dog destined for Kansas flown to Japan via United Airlines

Once located, Irgo was examined by a vet in Japan and is set to be flown by private charter from Narita, Japan to Wichita, Kansas on Thursday.

United Airlines apologized for the mix up saying; "an error occurred during connections in Denver for two pets sent to the wrong destinations".

After alerting United staff, Swindle got in touch with Lincoln's owners, an American military family who live in Japan. "Like, the fact that we have no idea is the most frustrating part", Kara Swindle, Irgo's owner, told the TV station.

She says at first, she was "really upset" with United, but did appreciate the airline's efforts to send him home as comfortably as it could and for providing updates on how he was doing on the return journey. I instantly burst into tears.

She says she doesn't foresee him going on anymore flights in the near future. The family and Irgo were flying from OR to KCI, with a layover in Denver. But when mistakes are made with the animals we're attached to, who have no way to let us know if they're okay or not, it's a fairly terrifying experience for the owner.

'He's never gonna want to fly regular again!' she joked.
