International flight makes a pitstop to protect passenger’s pet.
A pilot’s quick actions saved a dog from freezing in the cargo area aboard an Air Canada flight after the heating system malfunctioned.
“As soon as the crew became aware of the temperature issue, the captain grew rightfully concerned for the dog’s comfort and well-being,” Air Canada spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick told CNN.
The aircraft, traveling from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Toronto, Canada, was about to cross the Atlantic Ocean, when the pilot diverted the flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
