KOOL Question of the Day

Airlines would like to close the barn door on emotional-support animals, they want to limit the animals traveling in plane cabins to trained service dogs. The airlines would also accept miniature horses, as recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

Plane crews and federal officials suspect some travelers are sneaking pets (pig, turkey & monkey) aboard planes in the guise of comfort animals to avoid paying fees of about $75 per flight for pets kept in containers beneath seats. Comfort animals can sit on their owner's lap if they are leashed. 

Earlier this year, the Transportation Secretary created a committee to try to negotiate a compromise between airlines and advocates to limit the definition of comfort animals. Since beginning in April, the group has debated possible restrictions on the size and species of comfort animals.
