Qantas Airbus A330 grounded after dog in cargo chews up wiring

Qantas’ problems on their Airbus A330 fleet just don’t seem to end. This time a Qantas A330 aircraft from Auckland to Melbourne was grounded. The reason — a distressed pet dog escaped from his kennel in the cargo hold, and chewed up the wiring. Must have been a big dog, and extremely distressed to chew through the panel covers to get to the wiring.

As a dog lover, I read this story from the Courier Mail with amusement and a little apprehension. I just hope Qantas does not take punitive actions in transporting pets.

I wonder if the dog owner will or should be made to pay the repair bill ?

As usual your comments are always welcome.
