Does everyone know what a big, dirty, powerful, nasty and evil-tempered bird a peacock is? If someone brought a loose peacock on a plane, I would get off. I can't imagine the amount of damage a bird like that could do if it got po'd.

I think this "support animal" stuff if going too far. I applaud the airlines for starting to require the need for a support animal be documented and the animal have some kind of certification that it is properly trained. That will take care of the peacocks, as they are untrainable.

I just think it’s awesome that someone showed up at the airport and said “ This is my support peacock, Dexter”.

The whole “emotional support animal” thing is ridiculous, and it’s totally abused because people just want to take their animals on the plane with them.

I was on a flight where a passenger attempted to board with a 24" iguana...on a leash.

Freaking snowflakes.

I see more and more dogs on flights. And, every once in a while, an ill-behaved dog.

It’s getting old.

I’m waiting for someone with a dog to have a seat next to a person with a severe dog allergy.

I don’t fly often (1-2 times a year), but I have never been on a flight with any kind of animal. I wouldn’t mind a dog. In fact, a couple friendly ones wandering around the plane sounds awesome.

I assume if a person was allergic, they’d switch people around to accommodate that. But it could still be an issue.

I know of at least 2 people who have gotten fake letters from a doctor designating their pet as a support animal specifically so they could keep them with them on the flight instead of them having to be crated and put wherever. It’s a farce.

Last year I did 122 flights. I’m sure I’ve seen some of those “support” dogs. I’m sure in one case that was the situation.

True support dogs are extremely well-trained to behave well in public. Some people should have such training.

I’m sure people have been moved because of dogs on planes. But I look for this to escalate at some point. I think that this year will be “interesting.”

Btw - the picture of the duck looking out the plane window is art. It’s worth a click-through to see.

"Last year I did 122 flights."

I am not afraid of flying, nor adverse to standing in line, i just find the whole process of making it to the airport on time and getting through security with my family (which has become easier the older my daughter has gotten) so incredibly stressful.

Obviously you probably took most if not all of those flights for work, and hence alone, but still.

If I had to fly 122 times a year, I would unquestionably require a comfort peacock.

The year before was 156.

My home airport is ridiculously small and easy to get through.

I love my job when I’m out in the field. That helps.

Conversely I don’t like working in an office.
