Delta updated its service and support animal policy in March, but more changes are on the way. Further restrictions go into effect July 10.
Moving forward, a limit of one emotional support animal per customer per flight applies and pit bull-type dogs are no longer considered service or support animals. The additional changes are a result of recent incidents during which multiple employees suffered bites from traveling animals and an 84 percent increase in reported incidents involving service and support animals. Incidents include not only biting, but also urination, defecation and an attack.
“The safety and security of Delta people and our customers is always our top priority,” noted Gil West, COO, Delta Air Lines. “We will always review and enhance our policies and procedures to ensure that Delta remains a leader in safety.”
Delta carries approximately 700 service or support animals daily and nearly 250,000 annually. Over the past years, Delta passengers attempted to fly with an array of non-traditional service and support animals, including turkeys, gliding possums, snakes and spiders.
