Egypt sniffer dog's costly air movement 2 hours, 27 minutes ago
CAIRO (AFP) - An Egyptian sniffer dog charged with ensuring the security of an EgyptAir flight from Cairo to New York has answered a call of nature that cost the airline an estimated 10,000 dollars.
The flight had to be delayed for more than an hour when the unnamed animal did his business in a cabin filled with 179 passengers on Flight 985, a security source at Cairo international airport said Friday.
While checking the cabin for explosives and other dangerous materials and giving the all clear, the dog did what dogs do and produced something to be sniffed at.
The captain then ordered that the cabin be cleaned and disinfected, resulting in a delay of 65 minutes, the airport source said.
"Each hour a scheduled takeoff is delayed costs the company 10,000 dollars in supplementary fees and penalties," the source said.
My daughter has a special friendship with a sargent/colonel whatever rank, he has a police dog I think is used for drug sniffing.
Its a german shepard and my daughter loves dogs.
From what I understand many police dogs live with a police family and are treated like American police dogs; part of the family.
I highly doubt that the dog is going to be held accountable, but the handler will be. And then the wife and kids will take the side of the dog.
