In addition to the Service Animal Form, you will need to present a service animal vest, harness, leash, or other tethering device used on the animal, as well as any other items needed to care for your animal during the flight.
Service animals must be well-groomed and free of odors before flying. Your animal must be trained to behave in a public setting and should not exhibit any aggressive behaviors. Service animals must not exhibit disruptive behavior during the flight. Excessive disruptive behavior includes but is not limited to: scratching, whining, barking, growling, biting, and lunging.
You are responsible for controlling your animal for the entire duration of the flight.
In accordance with federal safety regulations:
· You cannot sit in an emergency exit seat when traveling with a trained service animal.
· The animal must be positioned so as not to obstruct your expeditious evacuation in the unlikely event of an emergency.
· If you opt to transport your trained service animal in a carrier, the carrier must be properly stowed for taxi, takeoff, and landing under the seat in front of you.
· An animal can be placed on your lap or on the aircraft floor.
Animals must not:
· Extend into the aircraft aisle
· Occupy an aircraft seat
· Occupy a tray table
· Encroach upon a neighboring seat
If an animal does not meet the qualifications to travel as a trained service animal, the animal may be eligible to travel in accordance with our Pet Standard for a fee.
