Emotional Support Peacock Not Allowed Onto Flight To Los Angeles

The "emotional support" peacock and his handler were trying to fly to Los Angeles.

A woman's attempted to bring a peacock onto a flight as an emotional support animal was denied by United Airlines.

However, a woman flying out of Newark Liberty International Airport in USA was left spitting feathers when she couldn't take her pet peacock on a United Airlines flight.

The bird didn't meet guidelines for several reasons, it said, "including its weight and size".

A photographer from NY has reportedly been banned from taking Dexter, her beloved stress relieving peacock, aboard a jet.

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

Although exact figures aren't available, airline employees say dogs and cats are the most common animals on planes, but there have been sightings of pigs, snakes and turkeys too.


Support animals have been a challenge for airlines.

After offering to buy the bird its own plane ticket, the woman was instructed that the peacock would not be allowed to fly.

Photos of the passenger and her peacock are going viral after being denied entry on a United Airlines flight. Regardless of how indispensable a passenger might believe her therapy peacock to be, the science on emotional support animals is decidedly mixed. 'Ignoring the true intent of existing rules governing the transport of service and support animals can be a disservice to customers who have real and documented needs, ' it added.

There were those who disagreed with emotional support animals, as a whole.

Meanwhile here at home, Air Canada will only allow dogs to board as recognized emotional support or psychiatric service animals.

According to the Department of Transportation's guidelines for air travel with service animals, "unusual animals are evaluated on a case by case basis".
