New Airline Restrictions for Emotional Support Animals

More and more airlines are reporting that the number—as well as the types—of emotional support animals flying on planes is reaching crisis proportions. We’re not just talking about dogs and cats—the cabins of some airlines are beginning to resemble Noah’s Ark. Now, United Airlines is the latest airline to crack down on passengers trying to bring their so-called emotional support animals on board. The policy change was prompted in part by a passenger who tried to board a United flight with a large peacock last Sunday at New Jersey’s Newark Airport. Delta announced similar restrictions last month. Watch Peter Greenberg’s report for CBS This Morning to learn about the problem and how the airlines are trying to cope.
