"About The Other Passengers...": Animals In Flight

When life requires traveling with the family pet and or service animal consider your flight and transport options as increasingly the needs of other passengers will be considered before you are offered a ticket. Excluding persons with disabilities, airlines can pretty much dictate when, what kind and how many pets and or therapy animals are passengers on any given flight. Yesterday people flew with their animals in crates below the flight deck with baggage, coffins and other items. Today we insist Fido sit in the seat next to us. Just as passengers flying without small children try to find seating arrangements in a more quiet spot increased security on flights makes a already stressful situation even more so when you add the diversity of therapy animals requiring room on overbooked airplanes. The Details, h/t Miami Herald
