Delta Airlines banning “pit bull type dogs” from flights

, , 9 Comments


ROSS: DELTA AIR LINES SAYS IT’S NO LONGER ALLOWING PASSENGERS TO FLY WITH “PIT BULL TYPE” DOGS AS SERVICE OR SUPPORT ANIMALS. DELTA IS CITING “SAFETY AND SECURITY” OF ITS EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS AS THEIR MAIN MOTIVATIONS BEHIND THE DECISION. THE AIRLINE DESCRIBES IT’S BAN AS AN “ENHANCEMENT” TO ITS POLICY ON ANIMALS IN PASSENGER AREAS. CRITICS SAY FIGURING OUT EXACTLY WHICH DOGS ARE AFFECTED COULD BE A CHALLENGE. DELTA ALSO SAYS IT’S LIMITING TRAVELERS TO A SINGLE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL PER FLIGHT. THE CHANGES TAKE EFFECT JULY 10TH.

    Won't be flying Delta till this changes. A decision based on ignorance and bias, not necessity. Vets have told me they see more bites from Jack Russells and labs than Pits. I have "Pit bulls" . Fine as any dog.
    They were called "Nanny dogs" in England. Even my rescues are sweet and gentle. They love what you love and will die to protect family. This decision is just wrong.

    Wrong!! These people make decisions based on ignorance and fear, not common sense or knowledge. People need Pitbull Service dogs. I will repeat, SERVICE Dogs, dogs specifically bred and trained to provide services for them, not just personal pets. I am a volunteer and have never been attacked by a Pitbull, I take my 9 y/o cockapoo out a lot and meet a lot of dogs, he’s never been attacked by a Pitbull, in fact, he treats dogs more respectfully than people do sometimes. People need to think, what if they need a Pitbull Service Dog but they can’t fly Delta Airlines because of this stupid policy? I know I don’t need a service dog, but what if something happened and I need a service dog? Delta Airlines will loose business because of this policy and it should be changed.

    Also, how many times do people have to deal with unruly passengers who get drunk on flights? How many times have people hurt other people in America? I think people are more dangerous than any dog.

    HELP..get the law passed that if (ANY PARENTS OR COUPLES THAT HAVE PITBULLS AND KIDS IN THE SAME HOME, BE CHARGED WITH CHILD ENDANGERMENT) you can't smoke in a car with kids, kids need seat belts or parents get fined, can;t leave a kid in a car when hot or get fined…WELL HAVING KIDS AROUND PIT BULLS IS WAY MORE DANGEROUS THAN ALL OF THESE THINGS!!
