Woman denied emotional support peacock on United flight

The rules say passengers have to prove their emotional support animal is well-trained, provide appropriate documentation to the accessibilities desk, and give 48 hours notice before the flight.

According to Live and Let's Fly, the woman said the peacock was an emotional-support animal, allowed to fly for free.

United Airlines employees at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey recently told a passenger that her emotional support peacock wouldn't be able to accompany her on her flight.

The woman, who remains unidentified, even bought the colorful bird its own seat, but it was still denied entry past the ticketing area of the airport, United Airlines spokesperson Andrea Hiller said.

And look, we can kind of see why an airline wouldn't want a fully-grown male peacock on board.

United told Fox it also is re-evaluating its support animal policies.

In his experience, the pigs were fairly well behaved.

"We know that some customers require an emotional support animal to assist them through their journey", she said. "I had a cat get loose and start running through the cabin", Laurie said.

Laurie suspects that things have gotten wild ever since the airlines started charging fees for everything from carry-on luggage to pet carriers.

Earlier this month, Delta made headlines when they announced an update to their service and support animal policy, based on their report that "animal-related incidents" such as urinating, biting, and aggression have increased by 84 percent since 2016.

Still, change could be in the air.

"This animal did not meet guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size".
