American Airline's sent the body of a Brooklyn mom to the wrong country for burial - and then callously demanded more money to fix the screwup, the widower and others involved in a lawsuit charged Monday.

Holy cow!

That's why I won't even fly with pets. I know - I ABSOLUTELY KNOW - they will be lost somehow.

What a horror story!

this is just sad. we hope that our family members can have some dignity at such a sad time. to make a mistake like that (which is a mistake and can happen) and then expect to charge someone for it instead of immediately fixing the problem and oppologizing for such a terrible error?
dont the airlines make enough money that,for cases like this, they can think of something other than the almighty dollar?
