Strikes Settlement in Dead Dog Case

5/24/2018 9:17 AM PDT


United Airlines has settled with the family whose 10-month-old French bulldog, Kokito, died in an overhead bin … TMZ has learned.

Although they’ve reached a settlement with the Robledo family, the amount of dough United is paying is confidential … according to the family’s attorney, Evan Oshan.

As we first reported, the family threatened to sue after a flight attendant allegedly ordered Catalina Robledo to put Kokito in the overheard compartment. After 2 hours of barking, Kokito died of suffocation.

The dog’s death threw United into another PR crisis … less than a year after it settled with Dr. David Dao, who was violently dragged off a flight.

United implemented new pet carrier policies after Kokito’s death.
