Airlines may deny cabin access only to animals that pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others.
Threatening behaviors that put others’ health and safety at risk include growling, snarling, lunging at, or attempting to bite other persons on the aircraft or cause a significant disruption in cabin service (i.e., a ‘‘fundamental alteration’’ to passenger service).
Take note that allergies are not sufficient grounds to deny a service animal carriage in the cabin.
The Service Animal Registry of California invites you to have your assistance animal registered in order to designate its status. We also encourage you to take our online classes so you can be fully aware of your rights and gain more knowledge about your support animal.
Finally, we present to you our book entitled, “ASSISTANCE ANIMAL LAWS: LEARN YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING SERVICE ANIMALS, EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS, THERAPY PETS, AND OTHER DOGS, CATS, AND ASSISTANCE ANIMALS” to provide you with a complete education on assistance animals.
