PAX Attacked by Emotional Support Dog on Flight

According to a spokesperson for Delta Air Lines, an unidentified passenger was bitten by a fellow passenger’s emotional support dog. A fellow passenger said the victim was seated by the window and the passenger to whom the dog belonged was located in the middle seat at the time of the incident.

Delta said in a statement: “Prior to pushback of flight 1430, ATL-SAN,  a passenger sustained a bite from another passenger’s emotional support dog. The customer who was bitten was removed from the flight to receive medical attention. Local law enforcement cleared the dog, and the dog and its owner were re-accommodated on a later flight; the dog will fly in a kennel.”

That dog should never have been on the flight. They are not trained service dogs. The owner should party for all medical and emotional treatment.
