    If you have an emotional support animal, and it isn’t a dog, you’re not getting them in a plane with you. New rules going into effect in about a month.

    And, btw, you may not be able to bring your chihuahua either unless they meet this criteria:

    The final rule on Traveling by Air with Service Animals defines a service animal as "a dog, regardless of breed or type, that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of a qualified individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability."

    I don’t know about you but I think the guy with the emotional support elephant was merely trying to save on shipping...

    Sneak it in? The bastid would probably start rubbing his legs together and get us both kicked off the flight...

    I’m glad they ruled.

    My wife and I once booked nice seats on a flight from San Francisco to London. A guy had the window seat next to us and insisted his German shepherd got to lay across both of our two seats with the armrests down. I guess we were supposed to stand in the aisle for the 11-hour flight.

    The stewardesses didn’t know how to cope and shuffled us from seat to seat, not even sitting together, to accommodate that guy.

    Your ostrich probably feels ostrich sized so therefor you are his support animal.

    Of course your ostrich can fly. Just get it a trebuchet. That sucker will fly a very long ways. The landing may be rough but practice makes perfect

    From the news I've seen lately, it seems like it is the wild animals that are purchasing the seats.

    Wow! There's even an ad on tv showing a big dog taking up all the room.

    The only concept of "emotional support animal" squeaks in my mind... I wouldn't let any animal but humans enter a plane, or even "seat" near me

    I know a girl who once flew coast-to-coast in the US with her pet hedgehog inside her bra the entire flight. And this is a well-endowed girl. I can't even begin to imagine how uncomfortable that must have been, but she's an animal lover and a libertarian, so... :rolleyes:

    I'll show them. Next time I travel I'll sneak my emotional support tardigrade on board. They'll never know.

    I'll stick with my pet rock. Easy to look after, no noise and doesn't eat much.

    You are far more accommodating than I would have been. He'd have need an emotional support animal after I was finished with him.
