Support monkey gets "loose" on F9 flight...

Wed Aug 10, 2016 9:36 pm

Flight 1087 from CMH to LAS.

Melissa Nunnery, a spokeswoman for McCarran International Airport, initially said a Frontier staff member reported to McCarran “that the monkey was loose, or got loose” briefly during the flight, but couldn’t clarify what “loose” meant.

So we've seen support dogs, cats, pigs, and now monkeys. What's next?

So basically nothing happened. What an outrage! We should find out where this person lives and ruin their life.

Bringing an uncaged monkey onto an aircraft is endangering the welfare of everyone aboard. To what end? So that some self involved snowflake can feel better about themselves?

If you need support from a living thing and can't find a human, why not a hamster?

This has been abused and must stop. All this support animal stuff is total nonsense. Unless you are blind you don't get one. It is nothing more than a racket to get people around "no pets" rules. This is a disgrace. Abused as badly as the handicapped parking permits. Actually, possibly even worse.

Oh no, not a Support Jellyfish. I had contact with one some weeks ago near Sardinia. She "supported" me to get out of the water as soon as possible. Useless to say that we stopped our cooperation.

Some passengers also have Support Fleas....

Okay, from this side of the pond, what are the requirements that the passenger has to show to the airline that prove that said creature is "a support animal"?
Is the airline required by law to carry said creature?

In the U.S. only trained service animals require accommodation. Emotional support animals do not. Even the Air Carrier Access Act does not directly require the accommodation of emotional support animals. I suspect most airlines accommodate an emotional support animal because they don't want to fight about it. It would be a PR black eye.

At least that is my understanding.

The miniature horses or ponies live longer than dogs, up to 30 years, whereas you have to get a new dog after 8-10, because they get too old to do what they've been trained to do. The horses also are more mild mannered, less likely to react to outside stimuli, like a squirrel running by. Some people need the hand dexterity that comes with a monkey. The article says it's an emotional support animal, however. A number of different animals can be useful to predict oncoming health issues, or calm people. If the animal is behaving in a way that's a danger to others, the person can be asked to leave. Lot of gray area with service animals, and the way the law is interpreted.

I'm actually quite surprised that the monkey was actually allowed on the plane. With monkeys they don't really have a permitting and training system in place like that for horses or dogs or cats, and there hasn't been a huge amount of knowledge on how monkeys are for "emotional support" (which for conditions like PTSD can actually extend to physical support, especially since many symptoms are physically manifested)
