Passengers abuse rules to bring animals on planes
Passengers abuse rules to bring animals on planes
If you think you are seeing more four-legged flyers, that’s because it’s easier than ever for them to ride in the cabin. CBS News travel editor Peter Greenberg reports on how some passengers are taking advantage of a law meant to protect the disabled. He put the law to the test by seeing if a pig could fly as emotional support pets.
It would be cool to have a pet airline that is like a daycare for your pets and brings them to meet you at your destination. Like there could be a special entrance or terminal where you drop off your pets then you go inside to the regular building.
Esas aren’t for disabilities. Even if it’s a “psychological disability”, for those there are psas (Psychiatric severice animals). Esa are simply for comfort, there’s a big difference between needing a dog to Mitigate a disability, and being calmed and help by an animal.
Once I heard about the lady bringing the peacock on board I knew it was getting out of hand
Certifications are FAKE
I barely want to sit next to a human let alone, a pet. Passengers should be notified a pet will be sitting next to them. Most likely, I’ll tell the airline to book me on another flight.
Why arent JUDGES slapping these jerks with life threatening a handicap person? Stolen valor?? Plus breaking laws to enter xyz?
Dog I understand a pig is a whole different story
i train service animals, I’m also training emotional support animals for service members with PTSD, both animals have an important jobs, and both are needed by their humans. When I’m training, expect to see dogs from 8 months old up to 2 1/2 yrs old, and they are in training, so you’ll see them distracted and forget, I’m teaching them, so they make mistakes, learning is thru repetitive learning, we will do it again and again, the gentleman said that non service dogs or ppl pretending to have service dogs, and yes I’ve seen that, often at Walmart and shopping centers but not all are, Just keep in mind, a lot of training is required for these pets, emotional support animal or service dogs, they all have a job to do, they both are important, and expect to see misbehaving and mistakes while learning
Wait until someone brings a giant snake
If humans feel superior enough to treat another life as property, at least they should treat their pets with maximum respect and consideration. I am not against allowing pets into planes as long as they are not a threat to people and do not endanger the flight.
I hate these sites!!! I have an ESA, but I went through my doctor and my therapist to get him certafied. These people make it so much harder for people with actual disabilities
If you can scam the system, good luck , cause they’re scamming you
well i guess i now have a fear of flying.
Umm can we say that ESAS don’t need any training only basic commands
The pig had a service dog vest on. That’s 100% so illegal
My Rabbit fly with us in the Cabin with in Europe ( except in U.K.) I would happily pay double just to fly with my pet . CARGO HOLD IS NOT 100% safe for my Rabbit pet just my humble opinion
I dont mind animals on the plane but i can see how it would be a problem for people who are severely allergic, or people who are scared of animals. I didnt even know it was a thing until i met my gf who gets anxiety attacks around dogs.
I have a Emotional Support dog. I see this stuff so much. Its bad. I have No problem showing a ID card saying that My Dog is Trained Emotional Support Animal. I made my ID and asked My Doctor if he would be willing to Sign the back of it with his phone number to clinic. So if anyone questioned it, they could actually Call the Doctor up. I think thats What we need, My Doctor even agreed saying we do need something like ID for Support Animals that has some basic info on it. Like Animals Name, Training (IE Emotional Support, PTSD, so on) and on the back, some Doctor Information.
Now, Dont think this ID would be just shown around to just anyone that asked. But more for like Airliners. Make sure the Support Animal is actually Legit.
Time to bring my Tarantula to London
No such thing as an Emotional support animal. Just B.S. so you can take your pet any where you want to go!
I’d rather fly with dogs than human babies.
This does not make travel fun.
These people don’t want to pay for a kennel and of course they don’t want to pay the normal fee for flying their pet. That’s it!
I am allergic to a dogs dander…so I should be in a cabin with a dog for several hours…no way… this is why I carry cyanide laced dog treats in my pocket when I fly….or put them in with the luggage and cargo.
How you shave with a straight razor blind? How you know you didn’t miss a spot? Can I bring my pet WOLVERINE?

Passenger mauled by emotional support dog on Altanta-to-San Diego flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVdvpAMlsMM
Friend: *bets something*
Me: haha, yeah, when pigs fly!
What a STUPID idea! I would stop flying commercial if I had to deal with someone else loud, and probably stinky DOG!
As long as I ain’t sitting next to it and it’s not making any loud noise and I can’t smell it’s poop then I don’t mind
What about my 18′ python. Snookums gets sad when she has to ride in cargo.
When I saw the ‘When Pigs Fly’ tag on the CBS graphic, I thought for sure they were going to recount the most infamous swine story of them all:
In 2000, a woman purchased a ticket on USAirways from Philadelphia to Seattle, accompanied by a pot-bellied pig support animal. When she showed up at the ticket counter, the animal was actually over 200 pounds in weight, and initially the airline refused to board her. After a heated confrontation between the woman and airline agents, a customer service manager made the decision to grant her and the pig travel – and the rest is history.
I know, not very believable, so here you go:
My stuffed ESA scooby doo sleeps in my cabin bag and KLM didnt complain when i brought him onboard business.
Went to ireland last year and found spuddies (couch potatoes) at blarney castle.
I’m bringing my pet WOMBAT
Esa are so easy to get tho and it’s no where near as bad as faking a service animal
To get an esa ask ur therapist
(Esa do not have public access)
To get a service animal as ur doctor (u have to be disabled)
The Seeing Eye is based out of Morristown, NJ. They do incredible work for the visually impaired.
ESA are not protected
I really love the pets, but what if I have an allergy?
People need emotional support animals
I’d need one on any long haul flight
Guide and service animals are the best in the world
Funny how people are complaining about more and more emotional support animals yet suicide and depression are at an all time high.
Truth, self-centered entitle evil people. They live to ruin others days.
Aren’t ALL PETS "emotional support" animals?
where I live (sweden) a dog handler, meaning the ¨disabled¨ person has to carry their service dog id card with them where ever they take the dog. I think that would stop this whole fake thing, like for gods sake Karen, no.. your barking Chihuahua running all over terminal nine, is NOT a service dog..
Honestly people just need to be educated on the law
What about people who are allergic? I can’t be in the same plane as a dog for over 4 hours or I’ll litterally stop breathing…happy this doesn’t happen in my country
A seeing eye dog on an air liner is understandable just from a common sense point of view. As for the other so called emotional support pets,give me a break. What has happened to our society. I have never seen so many mentally weak people before. Is it the everybody’s a victim syndrome that has been brainwashed into so many people’s minds. People need to realize that the world does not revolve around them. Most people need to toughen up mentally and grow a thicker skin.
Idiots….keep it up and we all get busted and lose rights.
