Very interesting...

delta.com says that "household birds" can be brought into the main cabin, but I wouldn't quite call a goose a "household bird". Also, the animal must be in a kennel (which it isn't) and must be in the seat underneath it. Don't really see how delta.com would allow an animal to avoid these rules.

Of course, it's quite possible that the traveler was considering the goose a service animal and had the notation that would allow the pet into the cabin. Much like someone got away with it on US Airways several years ago, when they brought a pig into the First Class cabin on a PHL-SEA flight. http://abcnews.go.com/US/story?id=95217&page=1 Seeing eye dogs are one thing (and have a place wherever they go); pigs and geese,
