Excerpt from the FINAL RULE on Air Carriers Access Act
General Requirements of Part 382
In a nutshell, the main requirements of Part 382 regarding service animals are:
> Carriers shall permit a service animal to accompany a qualified individual with a disability in any seat in which the person sits, unless the animal
obstructs an aisle or other area that must remain unobstructed in order to facilitate an emergency evacuation or to comply with FAA regulations.
After watching the entire video here are my thoughts...
The flight crew said they smelled alcohol on his breath. He is beligerent. He is rude. He is using foul language and there is a little girl 2 rows
behind him!! Shame on him. I feel sorry for him. He is apparently not right and I appreciate his service to our country and the way he has been
treated for that service, but, he is not being a good citizen.
With that being said...WTH is taking TSA so long??????? OMG.
The man should have left the plan and had the conversation with them on the jetway. He was not going to fly anyway. They told him that. All he is
doing now is delaying EVERYONE else on that flight and subjecting them to his private hell.
The way I feel this should have been handled would have been to say...this plane is full, this plane is packed. Can you please put the dog at your
feet until the seatbelt sign goes off? Meet him half way..
Diplomacy..sheeshh...what happened to that?
But now, he probably got fined for his actions.
I feel bad for the other passengers. Especially the children. How scary for them. Shame on this man. Shame shame shame.
