As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
American Airlines will ban a number of animals, including hedgehogs, sugar gliders and goats, from its flights, beginning July 1.
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.”
Suzanne Boda, American’s Senior Vice President in Los Angeles, said in a video posted on the airline’s website on Monday that the changes apply only to “support animals,” and that the company’s current policies regarding service animals would remain in place.
The article goes on to state the following:
Boda cited past “incidents” regarding support animals as the airline’s reason for the new restrictions.
“We’re tightening things down a little bit, because as you know, we’ve had some incidents in the past on our aircraft and we want to make sure that the safety of everyone, including support animals, is protected,” Boda said.
