Simba the French Bulldog has a new favorite airline, thanks to an Air Canada pilot who cared enough about his safety to divert a recent flight.
The Air Canada flight from Tel Aviv, Israel to Toronto, Canada was about to head over the Atlantic Ocean when the heating system in the cargo hold malfunctioned. Realizing that Simba was down in the hold and might freeze to death over the cold North Atlantic, the captain made the call to divert the flight to Frankfurt, Germany.
The dog was taken off the flight and put on another one with a functioning heating system, and he was reunited with his happy owner in Toronto.
