The other day I met a passenger at the airport. When her Delta flight landed and disgorged its contents, I thought I was on Mount Ararat. There were nearly as many dogs and cats as people. I didn’t see the comfort turkey the airline mentioned in its announcement.
So I was not surprised to hear that Delta announced that there will be new standards when it has to carry passengers’ pet alter egos. And I do mean egos.
Starting March 1, passengers will have to document that their animals are cabin-broken. No more urinating or defecating on other passengers. No more licking the face of the stranger in the next seat. No more attacking passengers – as one dog did to become part of the lawsuit that finally led to action.
After the break I will say something that will get me called an unfeeling clod.
