An Air Canada pilot is being credited with saving a dog’s life by diverting a flight from Tel Aviv to Toronto after a heating system malfunction in the plane’s cargo area.

The seven-year-old French bulldog named Simba was taking its first flight when the pilot noticed the problem just as the plane was about to head over the Atlantic Ocean, where temperatures plummet.

With the dog’s well-being in peril the pilot decided to land the plane in Frankfurt, Germany.

Simba was placed on another flight and the plane continued on to Toronto.

The dog’s owner was more than grateful.

“It’s my dog, it’s like my child. It’s everything to me,” he said after they were reunited at Pearson Airport.

Aviation expert Phyl Durby said the pilot made the right call, despite tacking on about $10,000 in fuel costs and delaying the flight by 75 minutes.

“If you look at the outside temperature, if it’s minus 50 or 60, there is some insulation but it will probably still get down to below freezing (in the cargo area),” Durby said.

“The captain is responsible for all lives on board, whether it’s human or K-9.”

Ainda bem que existe NOTOC e bom senso. Show!

Fez o certo. Ao assinar a NOTOC o comandante está ciente da presença do animal e passa a responder por tudo que acontece ao cachorro durante o voo também.

 

E falaram que a manobra gerou 10.000 dólares em custos com combustível pra Air Canada (acredito que tenha sido até mais). Se o cachorro morresse e o dono processasse a empresa certamente a indenização passaria (e muito) disso.

Mesmo que a indenização a ser paga fosse menor que o gasto em combustível, a vida do animal e os sentimentos dos donos, valem muito mais que qualquer quantia....

Para quem tem cachorro a morte deles é uma das piores coisas da vida, se for por doença já é triste, quanto mais se for "morto" em uma viagem.

 

Meu cachorro, esse ai da foto, morreu esse ano de câncer e foi a maior tristeza que tive depois da morte do meu pai. Imagina se ele estivesse sadio e em uma viagem de avião ele morresse estando aos cuidados da cia. aérea?

 

Processaria para doer muito no bolso da aérea pois /44 traria meu dog de volta mas faria o cão de mártir e não ocorreria mais possivelmente.
