"Violators will face significant fines". John Kennedy tweeted he'll be filing a bill Thursday "that will prohibit airlines from putting animals in overhead bins".

"We take full responsibility and are deeply sorry for this tragic accident", United said Monday in response to the death of the dog in the overhead compartment.

Last year, 18 animals, mostly dogs, died while being transported on United - three-fourths of all animal deaths on US carriers, according to the Department of Transportation.

United Airlines, the carrier that endured harsh criticism a year ago when a passenger was dragged from an overbooked flight, is under the gun again. But Gremminger said the flight attendant, whose name she did not know, appeared distraught after the flight in NY when she learned that the dog had died.

"I was like 'It's a dog, it's a dog". "(The flight attendant) was like 'it doesn't matter'". They paid $200 to bring the dog on and were able to fit the bag under their seat on their outbound flight. Asked for a message to the family who lost its pet dog, she added, "I feel so bad for them".

The Department of Transportation "is looking into the circumstances surrounding the recent death of a pet onboard a United Airlines flight", an agency spokesman said on Wednesday.

In a statement to CBS affiliate KCTV, United said "an error occurred during connections in Denver for two pets sent to the wrong destinations".
