American Airlines Adds Restrictions On Emotional Support Animals

Read more at:

Earlier this year both Delta and United updated their policies when it comes to emotional support animals, and then just a few weeks ago Alaska updated their policy. Airlines have seen a huge spike in the number of passengers traveling with emotional support animals, and they’re starting to crack down on this.

With Delta, United, and Alaska having all added restrictions, there was one obvious airline missing.

American Airlines has just announced that they’re making changes to their emotional support animal policy. In updating their policy, American notes that they’ve seen a 40% increase in the number of people traveling with service and support animals between 2016 and 2017.
