Pretty pathetic response from someone trying to beva world class airline, to be given nothing but a small bottle of gin and two paper towels
and honestly, I have a dog and I absolutely love him, but a commercial plane is no place for a dog..!
The caveat to that is keeping the dog in a crate for the entire duration that it’s on board. You can’t blame the dog. It’s the owner’s responsibility to look after their pet.
But isn't the next layer of responsibility on someone working for the airline to ensure that things are ready for the next flight... You know, sky mall magazines restocked, trash picked up, dog crap removed from seats, etc.
strictly speaking, this is true, but so few people exercise any kind of personal responsibility. All of that has been transposed onto the schools, the government, pretty much everybody else but the individual. And, if this truly was a service dog, then depending on whatever the owner's disability was there may not have been much they could do about the fecal matter caked all over the seats..
Expect heads to roll on this one.
Probably a quick turn ,and the cabin crew didn’t do a proper cabin inspection.
Was the gin to clean or to forget...if to clean seems like a terrible waste of gin. If to forget them not nearly enough..
Pretty sure the 'service dog' was not actually a trained animal but rather a pet. There would be no reason for a true service dog to even be on the seat.
I wondered the same..
Something else I wonder.. is *WHY* are you not required to show some kind of documentation that your animal is actually a SERVICE animal.. as in, you are blind and it sees for you.. and the dog has been properly trained for its task by some accredited entity??
Apparently you cannot actually legally ask for "proof" that your animal is an "emotional support" or service dog or whatever.. which is just crazy, given how heavily regulated everything else in our lives are, especially when it comes to hygiene, safety, etc.
But I digress
Like many sad stories, this one begins with 'because congress, with the best of intentions, wrote a law....'.
Yeah, I often doubt the “best of intentions” part.
I'm waiting for people with good intentions to start extrapolating into the future and foreseeing unintended consequences. I'll not hold my breath.
A significant problem is that there isn't any properly accredited entity. There are lots of scam organizations out there willing to provide you with all sorts of stuff saying the hound from the pound is a "properly trained service pooch". See the linked article for additional data....
Service Animal Scams: A Growing Problem
"I also discovered a host of dubious service and emotional support animal "registries." For example, the United States Dog Registry will certify any dog as a “service dog” or a "therapy dog" for $58, and an outfit called ESA of America will happily certify your pet rat, hamster, or iguana as an “emotional support animal.” (Sample ESA customer testimonial–“I have now taken 3 flights with my dog, and the peace of mind of being able to just pack up and go anywhere I want with him is the greatest thing ever.")
