The long way home: Corgi Wrong Flight

Published: December 2, 2015

The long way home: Corgi Wrong Flight, This story lends itself to fanciful musings about the lure of Hawaii. It’s as good an explanation as a logistics mix-up on one of the year’s busiest travel days.

In any case, a gorgeous Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Bethany, who was flying Saturday from Seattle to a new home in Jackson, Miss., with a transfer at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, somehow got on the wrong plane at DFW and ended up in Honolulu.

The short-legged pooch was en route from Corgi breeder Paul Chen to a new home in Jackson, via American Airlines. When Bethany didn’t show up in Mississippi as expected, Chen posted a “little dog lost (or stolen)” notice on Sunday afternoon and offered a $1,000 reward for her safe return.

Apparently within hours, American Airlines representatives located the dog in Hawaii and said she would be flying back to DFW on Monday.

“She’ll continue her journey home (to Mississippi) on another flight the following day (Tuesday) to make sure that she is well-rested,” the airlines said in an emailed statement.

While in Honolulu, the dog was under the care of a veterinarian, and American employees checked on her regularly, providing updates to the new owner, the statement said.

“We apologize to Bethany and her owner for the extra flight to Honolulu, and look forward to introducing her to her new owner very soon,” American said in the statement.
