Dog In Seat On Delta Connection flight

Wed Jan 27, 2016 1:24 am



I guess he's a service dog but is he a fire and emergency service dog?

Awesome - LOL!

I wonder how it responded to the emergency exit safety demo?

Dog not in exit row.

Dog in row in front of exit row.

Looks like the dog is in the row in front of the emergency exit based on the proximity of the seatback and exit sign. I think the exit sign is pointing to the row behind. The window visible in the photo isn't an exit.

This lovely dog probably listened with more attention (despite not sitting directly at the marked emergency exit) and also paid more attention to the safety demo.

So the dog is occupying a seat, how does that work, given that all pax are required to have their seat belts fastened? Does he or she go onto the floor during take off and landing and turbulence, or aka when the seat belt sign is on?

According to DL rules on their website, animals are not permitted to occupy a seat intended for passengers, so they obviously weren't enforcing that rule.

Excerpts from DL rules for service and emotional support animals (in the Special Concerns link here):
http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_...ial-travel-needs/disabilities.html

Just as any other passenger with a disability, you are entitled to any available seat which you are qualified to use and your animal is expected to be seated in the floor space below your seat. No animals are allowed to occupy seats that are designed for passengers.

Please understand that with larger service animals or passengers with multiple service animals, we may need to re-accommodate you if the animal encroaches on other passengers or extends into aisles, which would be a violation of FAA regulations.

I would love to know more about this. What are the actual rules? Can he buy onboard treats?

On one of my flights from LAX-PHX, there was a very similar dog breed & size, which was in first class. During boarding he would put his snout between the seats and my wife and I would pet him. When the seat next to the lady became occupied, the FA asked that he be seated on the floor in front of the two seats that they were in (row 3). She did at least ask the guy if he minded.

However, there was no restraint on the dog. We were very confused, but no one seemed flustered by it, or even surprised, so we just thought that it was a regular thing which we had missed out on living in Hong Kong.

True service dogs (not ESA's) are trained to lay down in the row of seats whenever the owner is seated. That's the advantage of a Service Dog over the ESA dog. Service dogs are trained to handle situations such as this and remain calm. ESA's are not, in fact there is no required training at all for an ESA dog.

As was exactly the case on my recent flight.

If a dog is occupying a seat, then is the seat covered at all with a towel? The claws could damage the upholstery, and the dog may be shedding hair, due to stress possibly. If a dog had to get up and I had to sit in the seat, I would want it wiped down or a towel put down, that is just me, but I am sure I speak for a percentage of other pax. Some may refuse to sit there.

I know some pax are not that clean either, but at least we are the same species, and aren't planes cleaned after every flight..

Then you could have people who are allergic to dog dander may come and sit in the seat and have an allergic reaction too. Also, since the dogs are not belted in (they could become a flying object in the event of turbulence, etc. They do make harnesses that a dog can wear that would allow them to be belted into a seat, but the airline asks that you not allow a dog on the seats.

Nope, the schools that train service dogs train the dogs to ride in cars, buses and airplanes safely. Part of the reason is for the safety of the animal and persons around it. They are happy laying on the floor by their owners.

Dogs,pigs and cows (as correctly depicted in Southpark) are the best examples of how a species can evolve to become better, rather than go backwards, as is the case for human beings.

When the sh*t hits the fan, I hope dogs, pigs and cows survive and conquer the Earth.

They do make harnesses for dogs in cars that can hook to seat belts or through a fastened seat-belt, I have one for my Lab. Hard to tell if this one has one but I would hope, Great pic : )

In the picture the seat belt sign is turned off. My guess is they let the dog get into the seat once the seat belt sign was turned off.

And would be even happier if they could stick their head out the window into the wind but, alas, doesn't work on an airliner.

A dog on an airplane will never:

Get drunk and start a fight
Speak loudly and obnoxiously on a cell phone
Complain about the ethnicity/appearance of another pax
Smoke
Demand an aisle/window seat they weren't assigned
Demand to use a lavatory to which they are not entitled
Use a Knee Defender
Recline their seat back
Do the crossword in the in-flight magazine in pen

Don't worry, Seth McFarlane is making a Family Guy sketch now about this. There should be a nice video of a flight attendant asking the dog if you are willing and able to perform the duties necessary to assist in an emergency evacuation as stated in the safety briefing card.

The dogs are all welcome to sit next to me anytime (true service animals anyway). They would probably provide more intelligent conversation and exhibit better manners than many of the human seatmates I have had to endure. Pigs too. Neither would be likely to spend the entire boarding and deplaning processes yapping on their cell phones at 90 decibels. I might pass on the turkey though. I have a couple dozen (wild) turkeys that hang around my property. Not well mannered creatures by any measure.

Off course dogs tend to use trees and bushes to do their "lavatory business".
But how long are they able to hold until have to relieve themselves? are they able to hold for whole 12 hour long-haul flight + the time spent at airports before and after the flight? sorry, but I only have little experience with dogs.
