In another dog-related incident, United Airlines had to divert a flight because of a dog taken onboard. The flight, originally set to go from Newark, New Jersey, to St. Louis, was diverted to Ohio to reunite the dog with his family. The dog, whose itinerary had him going to Akron, Ohio, was mistakenly taken on the flight, leading what would normally be a two-hour trip into a four-hour one. About an hour and a half was also spent on the ground in Akron after the flight diverted to close to Columbus, Ohio. Passengers were compensated for the delay.
