  1. The flight attendant was an idiot and criminal charges should be filed against her. However, the owner is a total fool. I would never stick my dog in an overhead bin. Would you stick your dog in the trunk of your car? I would try to reason with the attendant, then get the captain involved and if that didn’t work I would raise hell and be kicked off the plane. If they deny service they have to refund. I would then book a flight on another airline.
