Thumbs up Good news! Cockroaches not allowed on WN aircraft.

I was told by a Southwest station manager, who is a friend of mine, that employees were instructed that insects ("including spiders" - just because they are not technically insects) are NOT allowed on board as "comfort animals."

.....and, you know that somebody probably attached a little "service animal" sash to their pet tarantula and tried to board.

Even mentions WN in the article, although not based on being a therapeutic animal, just as a pet. Once I actually thought about bringing(by carry on) my pet preying mantis to California for XMAS so it could bask in the CA sun for its remaining months. Never went through with it.

So you cannot bring on a 1 cm ladybug in a little container, but you could bring on a gorilla or a sheep or a python probably.

Keep up the good work, WN.

Every day I get up, the world seems to have become nuttier overnight.

Since I will not get CP, can my wife be a service. . . .

Nope. Ain't going there. Not worth it.

Hey wait! If I declare myself my own service animal can I get the open seat?

Only if you wear the vest.

Bad news: They're doing nothing to outlaw gate lice.
