Peacock pouts after United Airlines rejection

He didn't fly there The peacock's owner who calls herself Ventiko later posted this selfie on the bird's Instagram page posing with her family and Dexter in Indiana

The airline denied her, saying the animal did not fit its guidelines for support animals.

A woman was recently denied her emotional support animal when she attempted to fly on United Airlines, a peacock.

Delta announced changes to its support animal policy January 19 after reporting an 86 percent increase in animal-related incidents like urination, aggression, and biting on its flights since 2016. Their most recent post, posted earlier today, was taken in Miami, Oklahoma.

United's guidelines state that support animals need to sit on the floor in front of the passenger's seat without obstructing the aisle, and that documentation needs to be filed at least 48 hours before the flight. Then another passenger supplied video of the peacock and its owner entering the terminal.

Some Twitter users supported the United passenger's attempt to bring the peacock onto her flight, while others were outraged.

"In order to ensure we provide the best service to everyone onboard our flights, consistent with government rules we now require these customers to provide documentation from a medical professional and at least 48 hours advance notice".

He made the remarks on Saturday, after the end of 2 days of UN-brokered talks in Austria between the Syrian government and opposition.

"I really think that the whole emotional-support animal thing is just getting out of hand", Laurie said in an interview Tuesday afternoon.

"We are reviewing our existing policy and plan to share more soon", the spokesperson said, which means that a Delta-like crackdown is in the wings.

Photos of the scene were shared on Facebook by travel talk show The Jet Set, sparking online comments both condemning and praising United's decision.

Beginning March 1, the airline will require passengers with service animals to submit paperwork two full days before flying. The airline said it saw an 84% increase since 2016 in incidents involving animals that were not properly trained, which included urination, defecation, and attacks on passengers and crew members.

Airlines are also never required to accept snakes, reptiles, rodents, ferrets, or spiders. "We agree with Delta's efforts and will continue to support the rights of customers, from veterans to people with disabilities, with legitimate needs".
