    Many people aren’t lucky enough to fly first class—let alone a dog. But one very lucky Louisiana terrier was reunited with his family after four years on the road thanks to a free fare from United.

    Sam, a 10-year-old Yorkshire terrier, disappeared during the summer of 2011. His owners, the Lambert family of New Orleans, were heartbroken. But on April 14 they received a call that their dog had been found in Cedar Rapids, Iowa— almost 1,000 miles from home.

    What do you get in Dog Class? Is that what UA is planning to implement as a pseudo-Y+?

    They gave my dog ice cubes, to lick...

    Thought it was cool...

    That was 12 years ago, now it might be ice cream....
