A COUPLE has been praised after ratting on a passenger for bringing an animal on board a flight.
The couple sat behind another couple who kept taking their pet out of its carrier bag despite being told they weren’t allowed to.
The pet owners had their dog in a special holdall in which to stay for the entire flight.
However, they kept breaking the rules and letting it out, much to the annoyance of other passengers on board.
The couple sat behind them and told flight attendants about the dog, causing trouble for the pet owners.
One of the informers said they felt bad for what they had done, especially after it was revealed that the couple with the dog had left for very sad reasons.
So they turned to social media site Reddit to see if they were right or wrong.
They wrote: “After take-off, the couple in front of us took the dog out of its carrier bag and just held onto it. We could see the dog was just outside on the plane.
“There has definitely been dog odor in our area.
“A flight attendant saw it and told them it’s not allowed and the dog shouldn’t be outside.”
Despite being instructed by a flight attendant not to take the dog out, the couple ignored the rules and carried on.
Then the people behind them whistled at the cabin crew.
They continued: “A few hours went by and it happened again. The flight attendant was right next to us and my wife told him the dog was outside so they were verbally abused again.”
However, the couple who revealed soon felt bad after it was revealed the dog owners were thrown into an emergency situation following a tragic accident.
They said: “About an hour before the scheduled landing the husband contacted us and apologized for their dog and said that they had to book this flight in an emergency as his wife’s parents were in a tragic accident and they were doing everything they could get there.
“At this point my wife and I just look at each other and now we feel terrible.
“Are we bad people if we betray a couple for taking their dog out of their carrier bag after hearing the very sad news?”
But despite the sad news, people praised the spies and said they were still right.
One said: “Just because you’re on an emergency flight doesn’t mean you can’t follow the rules and put your dog in the carrier.”
Another commented, “There’s a reason the dog needs to be in the carrier on the plane, no matter what’s going on in his life, he needs to follow the same rules as everyone else.”
A third added: “As someone with major dog allergies, my holiday could be ruined by people who don’t follow the rules.”
Passengers on a recent flight saw what can happen when a pet becomes loose on board a plane.
A French bulldog puppy started ‘roaming the aisles’ on an airplane after escaping its owner.
The pilot’s announcements over the plane’s PA system to find the pet’s owner were initially unsuccessful because the pup’s human companion was sound asleep.
Meanwhile, the dog was seen pacing the plane asking for attention from other passengers.
Eventually the owner woke up to find his furry friend had escaped and gone exploring.
Video material Shared on Twitter by Amanda Dukes, reporter for Orlando television network WESH TV (@AmandaDukesWESH), showed the pooch being returned to its owner by a flight attendant, receiving lots of scratches and snuggles along the way.

Meanwhile, this passenger shocked people by taking a very strange companion on vacation.
