Atlanta Journal Constitution: DOT disallows Delta ban on pit bulls as service animals

The U.S. Department of Transportation issued a statement saying a ban such as Delta Air Lines’ on pit bulls as service animals is not allowed.

Delta announced last year that it was banning “pit bull type dogs” as service or support animals.

But on Thursday, the DOT said it “views a limitation based exclusively on breed of the service animal to not be allowed under its service animal regulation.”“Airlines are permitted to find that any specific animal, regardless of breed, poses a direct threat,” according to the DOT.
