Flight Crew Saves French Bulldog Suffocating On Flight

July 12th, 2018

The news has been full of incidents on airplanes where pets have been injured and even killed as a result of a flight attendant or crew member’s negligence. Dogs are either being forced to stay in small cages or are crammed into overhead compartments where they can’t breathe.

One little dog is lucky to be alive after a recent flight where he was having trouble getting enough oxygen.

This time, it wasn’t the flight attendants who were to blame. Instead, they who saved the dog’s life.

The owners of the dog were so happy to have their dog home safe and thankful to the flight attendants who helped. They had a friend post a letter to the airline to show their appreciation.

They shared the entire story and everything the flight attendants did to save the dog.

Michelle Burt said:

“We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the Attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation may have saved Darcy’s life.”

She went on to explain what great lengths the flight attendants went to help her with her dog. They even brought her an oxygen mask to try to get the dog to breath better.

She said:

“I placed the mask over her face, and within a few minutes she became alert and after a short time, she didn’t want the mask. I believe Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not.”

She fell that the flight attendants went out of their way to take care of her precious pup.

Other people may not have felt that saving the dog’s life was so important. To Michelle, the pup is part of her family. She said:

“It may have been only a ‘dog’ to some, not a major disaster certainly, but a family member to us. Goodness and kindness along with the ability to assess a medical crisis, albeit a canine in crisis saved the day.”

Michelle will never forget the kindness of those who helped her, and she wanted to make sure that they got the recognition they deserve.

She is well aware of all the negative stories about airlines and pets, and she knew she had to share her positive story.

The letter closed with:

“Renaud Spencer and Diane Asher were the helpers today. … The little boy in the seat behind Darcy was paying close attention.

“Darcy has made a complete recovery and I will confirm with my vet and will not fly with her in the future without my vet’s clearance.

“But I wanted to say thank you Jetblue and thank you to Renaud and Diane for doing their job and also being great humans. My husband travels frequently and we are grateful for Jetblue and the ease and comfort of the extra -legroom, tv service and general decency among staff that we observed over the years but now we have another reason to be grateful. Thank you.

“Sincerely, Michele”

This is one lucky little dog and some incredible flight attendants.

They made sure everyone on the flight was safe, even the dog, and they weren’t about to give up on her until they knew she was breathing better. Darcy is now home, where she is safe and sound.
