Would you speak up or try to speak reason with someone from the flight crew in a situation like this

  1. Yes - I would try to intervene

    64.7%
  2. No - I wouldn't take the risk of arrest, charges, missed flight, loss of airfare, hotel, etc.

    United Airlines disaster -- Why didn't anyone stand up for that poor dog?

    "How did the family, the witnesses or anyone working on that flight allow this insane act to take place?

    No one wants to blame the victim. The family is obviously traumatized and many on the flight with them have posted distraught comments on social media about what happened.

    But something is deeply wrong here: No one did anything to stop the stewardess.

    One person uncritically following an authority figure is understandable. A plane full of people doing the same is terrifying"

    The stupid owners should have said no in the first place.

    Yup. If showing that stewardess the ticket with the $200 extra for carrying a dog wasn't enough, I would have deplaned with my animal.
    I heard the stewardess said "I didn't realize it was a dog." She HAD to hear it barking. I'm sure the family told her when they protested. That was the dumbest excuse I've heard yet.

    Consider Germany, 1933-1945.

    True, the article actually mentions the Milgram experiment. I remember being horrified when they showed us the film in school:

    Face it. Once you enter the TSA porn-o-ray you surrender all your rights.

    Passengers said they heard the dog barking. The little girl went on Good Morning America, and said the stewardess was lying. I doubt this woman has a job anymore.

    Its been years since I have been on a plane. Don't they normally have a special area for pets in like the lower part of the plane?

    God bless you always!!!
