If I saw that I would worry that he was either having a medical problem, of that unexpected turbulence would cause injury.

Not sure whether I'm proud or sad that I just identified an airline by the coat hangers they use in the J cabin.

Also, I'm going to start finding ways to use a$$ gasket in my everyday banter. Thank you ACCDraw!

Sorry no picture but BIG kudos to the MIA Skyclub employee for instructing a woman to remove her bare feet from the table top.

What's wrong with people?

Too obvious to photograph.... Used a RUC to upgrade my LAX -MCO today. I was 2 of 20 for 2 seats. Just before boarding, the GA paged me and informed me that if I took the ug I would be seated by a service animal. I agreed since I have no qualms with a true service animal. I only joked stating that as long there is room for me. I had an issue once with a HUGE dog/service animal that took up the ENTIRE bulkhead.

Boarded the plane and no seatmate. Soon after a youngish girl comes toting 3 bags while actively chatting away on her cell phone. "Service animal" turns out to be a little mutt in a bag. To be fair, he was cute and being an animal lover, I have no beef with the dog. My issue is the people who seemingly abuse policies that are in place for those who really require such services.
Dog stayed in the bag most of the flight, but poked his head out enough for the FA to pet as she distributed food trays. Dog did come out for a brief visit later to eat off a bowl on the tray table, etc.
I have no issues with traveling with your little poochie, but keep them in their carrier and don't try to avoid paying by claiming it is a service animal. to the FA for encouraging this activity. ....

I read his post just before I read yours. I was wondering if yours was inspired. Brilliant work over in the DYKWIA thread!

I know everyone repeats the chorus of "we know most of those animals aren't true service/support dogs, but we don't dare challenge it lest we face social or legal repercussions," but last I checked, service dogs are not supposed to be the friendly/social/"come out and play and be patted" kind of dogs. I have a feeling that, if you had some sort of bone to pick, and had filmed those instances on your phone or camera, you could easily debunk the "service/support" claim.

What amazes me is just how much of the general public is aware of this loophole. We're visiting my wife's family because her sister just got married. She and her husband are about to head up to Minot and take their 4 month old malamute, and commented how he's so big and can't fly anymore. Then my wife's other sister, who has some tiny little mutt mixed dog, chimed in about how she wants to start claiming her little yapper as a support dog, because "all you really have to do is get a note from your doctor saying you have it for anxiety or depression." While her sister has dealt with anxiety and depression in the past, I was appalled at how serious she was about doing that, simply because she can't stand to be away from her dog for more than a few days, and she doesn't want to pay to bring the dog with her.
TLDR: I had no idea so very many people were aware of this loophole, and would so readily and casually exploit it.
