Your Emotional Support Spider And Goat Are Now Banned On American Airlines

As more support animals try to fly, American Airlines says leave the goats at home | Miami Herald No goats. Or peacocks. But mini horses ok under American Airlines new support animal policy

Any emotional support animal that growls, bites, jumps or lunges at people will be considered a pet, and pet fees and requirements will apply, the airline said.

The airline issued a list of animals - even those kept for emotional support - that will be banned from flights, due to "safety and/or public health risks".

"American, like other airlines, has experienced an increase in customers who are transporting a service or support animal onboard our aircraft-more than 40 percent from 2016 to 2017", it said in a statement.

American will now enforce the existing 48-hour advanced notice and pre-clearance policy for emotional support animals - including dogs and cats - where passengers must submit documents 48 hours ahead of flight time showing that permitted animals are healthy, trained and there at the recommendation of a mental health professional.

"A service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is basic obedience trained, potty trained, and task trained for someone's disability", said Amanda Pratt, the owner and a trainer at Scout's Legacy Service Dogs.

Now, American Airlines has followed suit with stricter rules that bar emotional support goats, amphibians and ferrets from flights, along with some other unusual animals.

American Airlines is based in Forth Worth, Texas.

Sorry, but you will no longer be able to claim your adorable pet hedgehog as an emotional support animal to take it with you in the cabin of an American Airlines flight, effective July 1.

The airline worked with several disabilities groups, including the American Association of People with Disabilities, Paralyzed Veterans of America, American Council for the Blind and My Blind Spot, to develop the new rules. At American, we want to have policies and procedures in place that protect our team members and our customers who have a real need for a trained service or support animal.

"Only one emotional support animal may be held on the lap of a guest with the disability, provided that the animal is no larger than a two-year-old child", the airliner says.

United and Delta also issued guidelines this year that implemented new restrictions on support animals on their flights. "Incidents when people try to pass off their pets as support animals are going to be reined in".
