Dog accidentally flown to Japan reunited with family

A United Express regional jet

A pilot told NBC News that a non-stop flight from Newark to St. Louis made an unexpected stop in OH on Thursday night to take a dog off the wrong plane.

United told CNN the unidentified animal was "safely delivered to its owner".

According to United, compensation was offered to all passengers as a result of the diversion. He tells 5 On Your Side about an hour into the flight the captain told passengers they flight had "miss-boarded cargo" and diverted the flight to Akron.

The incident was United's third dog-related mishap in one week; fortunately, this time, it led to a happier conclusion than the first.

Things just got even worse for United Airlines.
