@NKDrifter @LindyLawyer @Reuters You could try to find an airline that doesn’t allow animals on board and only use them, but due to the issue around discrimination for people who need those pets to live, you’ll probably be hard-pressed to find such an airline.
@NKDrifter @LindyLawyer @Reuters You‘re ignoring that many who bring animals on planes need them due to disabilities or health issues. I’m pretty sure it’s not legal to discriminate against those people or disallow their service animal. Plus, airlines have opted to allow small pets and that’s their right.
@NKDrifter @Reuters In addition, allergies are something that can be mitigated. If I were horribly allergic to cats or dogs, I’d probably bring along some allergy medicine just in case someone has a pet on board - the same as I grab zinc, vitamin c & sanitizer just in case someone is sick on board.
@NKDrifter @Reuters I think it is illegal and morally wrong to discriminate against people with disabilities or health issues that require a service animal. Those with allergies can just ask to be moved away from the animal.
@NKDrifter @Reuters I don’t think anyone would ever choose to fly with a pet if they felt it could be avoided - it’s stressful! But there will always be people who have service animals who have just as much right to fly as anyone else, so airlines would have a hard time outright banning animals.
