United Airlines will soon begin issuing brightly colored bag tags to customers traveling with pets.
The new visual measure is to help flight attendants further identify those pets inside the cabin. The airline is expected to have the new pet tags available by April.
Meanwhile, Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana plans to introduce legislation that would prohibit airlines from placing animals in overhead bins. That, after a dog passed away on a recent United Airlines flight.
According to the Department of Transportation, 24 animals died during air travel last year.
