Emotional Support Animal, Delta’s new policy.

Delta is making it tougher to get Emotional Support Dogs on flights. The Today Show bringing a pot bellied pig on board only proves that any well intentioned policy is subject to abuse.
Should we make it harder for my elderly mother to keep her handicap parking tag, just because some jerks abuse the policy, to score a better parking place?
I’ve been on many flights with small dogs. I have never seen one cause disruption.
Small children however ...
How about we make it a rule that small children must have certification that their Vaccinations are up to date before they board.

Why is this irrational rant in the Travel with PETS forum?
OMNI or delete.

Because many who travel with pets prefer to hold their small well behaved dog on their lap, rather than stuffing them under the seat in a bag.
This is not a rant.
This is Flyertalk where we often discuss getting the most from our travel experience, and taking every advantage available.
I think most people who travel with ESA are more interested keeping the dog on their lap, not in saving $100.
This forum is about traveling with pets. Some Flyertalkers , who travel with pets, are interested in this subject. They may or may not want to draw attention to themselves here.

This is not the correct forum for this type of debate, therefore I am shutting this one down.
