More and more passengers are claiming that their pets are flying with them for 'emotional support'. Some airlines have policies that do not allow disruptive animals aboard the planes. I have been on numerous flights that have small barking dogs. These dogs were barking at the gate before they board, yet the flight crew will not bar the disruptive animal, because the airline is afraid of a lawsuit. A couple years ago a cross-country flight made an emergency landing because a dog would not stop shitting. The other passengers were dry-heaving as the flight attendants ran out of paper towels to clean the mess. Passengers now also claim that a variety of animals are their ESA: chickens, rats, turtles, pigs, kangaroos. What is this, an airplane or the zodiac placemat at a Chinese restaurant? Is this the future of air travel? Passengers with fake certifications for their pets will get more common as the years go by. I have had enough.
