Popeyes Sells Emotional Support Chicken for Passengers

Popeyes Sells Emotional Support Chicken for Passengers
Ryan Boyd

In a move riffing on the recent kerfuffle surrounding the presence of emotional support animals on commercial flights, Popeyes has launched a promotion at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) that gives customers an “Emotional Support Chicken”container for to-go orders.

The chicken-shaped container has been approved for customers to bring aboard all major carriers, and the fried chicken chain said “This chicken provides comfort and nourishment during stressful air travel.  Unlike other chicken, it is marinated in real Louisiana spices for 12 hours and must be permitted to fly without restriction.”

It is unconfirmed whether flights will also allow full-gallon containers of sweet tea — a crucial component in the consumption of Popeyes’s biscuits, which will vacuum-seal your mouth closed.

    This is an awesome way to make light of all those ridiculous emotional support animals that others have brought onto or attempted to bring onto flights lately. I love it, some may call it insensitive, but others will finally hopefully be able to take a joke.

    I’m going to be in PHL on Xmas day. Any idea of they will still be available then?

    And the bids are up to $66 on one of the two listed on ebay. If I lived closer to Philly, I’d go get several.

    Awesome branding by Popeyes!

    On the flip side, it’s the worst fried chicken you can have next to KFC.

    OMG, the smell of someone eating fried chicken 12 inches next to me would kill me!! Maybe I can get BOSE to build some smell canceling nose covers!

    Very smart marketing – although I’d prefer not to sit next to someone mobexesting fried chicken. Now if only the airlines would crack down on this nonsense so those with real medical issues got the attention they need.
