Thread: American Airlines let's Horse on board for emotional support

    American Airlines let's Horse on board for emotional support

    Your opinion on letting animals fly with passengers for emotional support?

    I can see allowing it for the blind, handicapped & elderly, but for emotions?

    What am I missing?

    And a horse?

    Flying in the cabin

    Fully-trained service animals and emotional support / psychiatric service animals may fly in the cabin at no charge if they meet the requirements.

    Requirements

    1 emotional support / psychiatric service animal per person
    Animal must be a cat or dog (trained miniature horse may be permitted as a service animal); 4 months or older
    Animal must be clean and well-behaved
    Animals must be able to fit at your feet, under your seat or in your lap (lap animals must be smaller than a 2-year old child)
    If the animal is in a kennel, it must fit under the seat in front of you with the animal in it

    I have never seen a miniature horse on any plane here in Europe. I have seen people bring pets in cages that were then stowed in the cargo hold.

    When I saw the title of the thread I knew it had to be Onion or Babylon Bee. I guess I was wrong.

    Ridiculous. I bet about 99% of support animals are cons. They just want their pet to fly with them.

    Miniature horses are being trained to help the blind because they live a lot longer than dogs. They are categorized as service animals rather than support animals. I agree, most support animals are bogus.

    So the miniature horses are much more likely to be legit then. LOL.
