UNITED Airlines has had adequate of the chaos caused by romantic support pets on flights – and has now expelled a list of the animals that are banned from its flights.
The list of banned romantic support pets now embody “non-household birds”, hedgehogs, insects, snakes, spiders, rodents and reptiles.
While you won’t be means to bring your comforting hedgehog or tarantula on house a United Airlines moody from now on, many other forms of animals are still allowed on.
That’s providing you give the airline 48 hours’ notice, and get a sealed minute from your doctor.
So passengers could still get a cat or a rabbit on house – providing they infer it offers support for mental or earthy problems.
Guide dogs won’t be influenced by the ban.
There were 76,000 requests for romantic support pets from United passengers last year – a arise of 75 per cent in the last year.
The conditions is stricter with UK airlines.
Virgin only allows dogs on house for romantic support, while British Airways has banned romantic support pets completely.
But the pets have turn controversial, with many making a disaster on flights – or satirical or growling on board.

Dexter had been brought to Newark Liberty International Airport in the hopes of joining its owners on the moody to LA.

A orator for the airline said: “This animal did not meet discipline for a series of reasons, including its weight and size.
“We explained this to the patron on 3 apart occasions before they arrived at the airport.”
And back in Nov an romantic support pig kicked up a scent on house a US Airways flight.
A newcomer who brought the pig on house was kicked off a moody after it began to means mayhem.
The lady was given her marching orders after the havoc-wreaking sow began walking up and down the aisles.
Even attempts to tag the farmyard animal to an arm rest failed.
One repelled witness pronounced the brownish-red hog looked around 5 mill as it was tossed over the unclear woman’s shoulder and marched off.
Others primarily suspicion it was a duffel bag – but were given the startle of their lives when it began oinking on house the US Airways moody out of Connecticut.
