Questions I've been afraid of, part one
I recently took a trip to Israel on ELAL with my beloved dog, Kishka. Arriving at Ben Gurion airport, the staff held me off for a while without bringing Kishka to me from the luggage compartment of the airplane. I overheard some ground crew staff whispering that the pilot forgot to turn on the heat in the luggage section of the plane, and my dog froze to death. 5 minutes later, the crew nervously brought out a dog, which even though it looked very similar to my dog, I knew right away it wasn't.
"I want my dog!" I yelled at them. They thought they would pull a switcheroo on me?
"But, Madame, this is your dog", they nervously replied.
"Wrong!", I replied, "I was bringing my dog to Israel to be buried. He was ALREADY dead."
My question is, should I ask for an upgrade to business class on my next trip, or should I demand ELAL allow my next pet to accompany me in Economy class?
