The airlines provided a statement to Hawaii News Now, where they claim to "take great care" when transporting animals on flights, while also expressing their remorse as they await the necropsy results for the fallen pet.
"We were saddened to learn of the passing of our customer’s dog."

While Hawaii Air claims to have been in "frequent" communication with the dog's owner, Aulani Kupahu, he begs to differ.
"The first phone call was basically Tofu died. That’s it, Kupahu says. "Someone will be in touch with you. We waited, waited. Nothing. We never got no email - nothing. As far as Hawaiian Airlines reaching out to us, it was just those two phone calls, but I mean, I don’t know what the reason for them even calling. They have no answers for us."
The owner reportedly bought the dog for $10,000.
Fox News reached out to Hawaiian Airlines but has yet to receive a response.
This is the second time a dog has died within the past year for Hawaiian Airlines. Hawaii News Now reports that a man claimed his 2-year-old pit bull died while on a flight from Hawaii to Seattle in July 2021.

The airlines will have their hands filled with legal matters if the couple carries out with the lawsuit. It will be the transportation company's second suit within the past week. Last week, seven Hawaiian Airlines employees reportedly filed a class action lawsuit against the company's vaccine mandate.
Back in 2019, a Hawaiian Airlines flight traveling from Honolulu to New York City was reportedly diverted to San Francisco after a flight attendant suffered a fatal heart attack while on board.

The Maryland SPCA and Anne Arundel County Police offer the following tips to keep your pet safe this winter:
Pets should not be left outside for extended periods of time.
During the winter, outdoor cats sometimes sleep under the hoods of cars. When the motor is started, the cat can be injured or killed by the fan belt. If there are outdoor cats in your area, bang loudly on the car hood before starting the engine to give the cat a chance to escape.READ MORE: Advocates Rally for Maryland Lawmakers to Ban Ghost Guns
Never let your dog off the leash on snow or ice, especially during a snowstorm, dogs can lose their scent and easily become lost. More dogs are lost during the winter than during any other season, so make sure yours always wears ID tags.
Thoroughly wipe off your dog’s legs and stomach when he comes in out of the snow or ice. He can ingest salt, antifreeze or other potentially dangerous chemicals while licking his paws, and his paw pads may also bleed from snow or encrusted ice.
Never shave your dog down to the skin in winter, as a longer coat will provide more warmth. Own a short-haired breed? Consider getting him a coat or sweater with a high collar or turtleneck with coverage from the base of the tail to the belly.MORE NEWS: Shooting At Towson Student-Centered Apartment Building Under Investigation
Never leave your dog or cat alone in a car during cold weather. A car can act as a refrigerator in the winter, holding cold and causing the animal to freeze to death.
