Traveling through an airport can be a frustrating ordeal, but people inside Tampa International Airport got the surprise of a lifetime Friday.

According to WAVY.com, the two-year-old yellow lab named Ellie was preparing to board a flight to Philadelphia with her owner Diane Van Atter when the dog went into labor inside the Tampa airport.

The Aircraft Rescue Firefighters stationed at the Florida airport responded to the call for assistance and a nurse in the terminal joined in to assist in the birth process. The unidentified passenger helped deliver five of the eight puppies before having to leave for her flight.

The whole incident lasted around four hours, but the dog successfully gave birth to a litter of eight puppies, including seven males and one female. Lt. Natalie Brown of Tampa Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene shortly after it began and worked with Ellie throughout the process, according to Today.com.

Not only did some passengers tell airport officials they were voluntarily going to miss their connecting flights in order to witness the “magical” moment, but the father of the puppies, another service dog named Golden Nugget, was also seen jumping for joy over the birth of his new babies.

At the end of the ordeal, Ellie nursed her puppies in the terminal as a crowd of onlookers snapped photos and shared the story on social media.

American Airlines Offering Roundtrip Fares as Low as $32

Published

Granted, there are very few people taking to the air these days in the wake of the devastating global spread of the coronavirus.

But American Airlines, for whatever reason, is offering one of those crazy once-in-a-lifetime deals.

As first reported by One Mile At A Time, American has a fare through the month of April where you can fly from Miami to Los Angeles for $16 each way.

Yep, that’s right – $32 roundtrip to go coast to coast.

No doubt it’s one of the most eye-catching, startling fares ever offered, even better than when some airlines run a buy one/get one special. Not that we didn’t believe One Mile At A Time, one of the most well-respected and well-read aviation blogs out there, but we had to see this for ourselves.

Sure enough, when TravelPulse checked it out on Sunday, the fare had increased.

By eight whole dollars.

Choosing random dates and leaving Miami International Airport for Los Angeles International on April 22 and returning April 29, the fare for basic economy was $40 roundtrip. Want a better seat? Main cabin fares were just $96 roundtrip. (Forget about first class. You didn’t think American was that generous, did you? Those fares were $854 roundtrip.)

For the month of May, again choosing random dates and leaving Miami on May 13 and returning May 20, we found basic economy roundtrip fares for $56 and main cabin for $121.

So who’s going to take a flyer on these fares while the virus is still raging?

Certainly, there will be some folks, especially those that might absolutely need to travel more immediately. Or, you might have the gamblers out there who will take the chance that the pandemic and the restrictions will come to an end sooner than later, making the purchase of a May flight seem like a steal.
