United Airlines has had a longtime sketchy track record for keeping pets safe during flights. Perhaps more important than a ban would be a trenchant review of their pet-care procedures overall.

United Airlines will ban 25 different pet breeds when it resumes flying pets this summer, four months after a dog’s death prompted the airline to review its policies for transporting animals.

The carrier will again accept dogs and cats in the cargo hold starting July 9 if the animal’s guardian is booked on the same flight… United is also teaming with American Humane (the org that oversees Hollywood’s use of animals) to “improve the well-being of all pets that travel on [their flights].”

.

United announced the changes less than two months after a bruising week of public-relations fiascoes involving dogs. A French bulldog died March 12 after a flight attendant had the pet and its animal crate placed in an overhead bin. In a separate incident, the airline sent a Kansas-bound German shepherd to Japan. United also took criticism over its record of animal deaths in 2017, when it accounted for 18 of the 24 animals that died on a major airline.
