United said Wednesday that by April it will issue "bright colored bag tags to customers traveling with in-cabin pets", and that "this visual tag will further help our flight attendants identify pets in-cabin". The flight left Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday (local time) for St Louis, Missouri, but was diverted instead to the dog's correct destination of Akron, Ohio. A day later, it was reported that the airline confused two dogs and accidentally sent one to Japan when the animal was supposed to take a much shorter trip to Kansas City.

A pet was mistakenly loaded onto United Express flight 3996 from Newark to St. Louis, according to an airline spokesperson. The pet has been safely delivered to its owner.

This is the third incident involving dogs on United flights this week. The flight attendant allegedly did not hear or understand the family when they said the dog was in the carrier.
