Sometimes we all need someone to be around us to provide that emotional support when we travel or when we just sit at home and relax. Travelling means you have to manage your pet so that they can accompany you with ease. Birds of the same feather flock together, yet United Airlines recently denied one traveller’s demand to bring her emotional support peacock on a flight taking off from Newark Liberty International Airport.
A Second Ticket For The Peacock
Even after the unidentified woman claimed that she has a second ticket for the peacock, her request to take the peacock on board with her was denied by the airlines.
Conditions To Get Your Pet Onboard
The airline told the woman they won’t be able to take that peacock onboard since it does not meet the required guidelines. The weight and size was the main reason because of which they couldn’t allow having this animal onboard.
The Travel Talk Show The Jet Set
The pictures of this unusual scene were shared on Facebook by the travel talk show ‘The Jet Set’. I hope to read some views by the social media users, they asked to talk against or in favour of this incident.
Comments By People
There were many who were in favour of the woman and there were some who couldn’t support her. “Unbelievable, this has to stop now!!” one user wrote and one airline staffer said it would take 5+ dogs over the peacock who have attacked the coworkers. Turn next for more.
The News Breakdown
The news goes hand in hand with the Delta’s controversial decision of cracking down emotional support and service animals.
When on 19th Jan, Delta Airlines announced the restrictions on keeping a check on abuse of policy and the observed 84 percent increase in ill animal behaviour such as urinating, defecating, biting and attacks on flights. Turn next to read more.
New Rules By The Airlines
From March 1 Delta’s new rules will be applied to the emotional support animals. People will have to submit veterinarian health form and immunization record 48 hours prior to the airlines.
Specific Animals Will Not Be Allowed At All
Further, as of March, Delta won’t permit fancy emotional support animals including ferrets, creepy insects, spiders, goats or creatures with tusks or hooves to fly.
