American Airlines: Your Goat is NOT a Service Animal

posted by Mary Booth - 

American Airlines is putting an end to passengers calling whatever living thing they bring aboard a "service animal".    Support animals also have to be trained to behave properly in public and be under control at all times. 

New guidelines make it clear.  THESE are NOT service animals!

  • Amphibians
  • Ferrets
  • Goats
  • Hedgehogs
  • Insects
  • Reptiles
  • Rodents
  • Snakes
  • Spiders
  • Sugar gliders
  • Non-household birds (farm poultry, waterfowl, game birds, & birds of prey)
  • Animals with tusks, horns or hooves (excluding miniature horses properly trained as service animals)
  • Any animal that is unclean / has an odor

Some people tried to pass off their pets as service animals.  Not happening anymore.  You'll have to pay a pet fee, assuming your animal meets the PET requirements, that is.
