Good move.

Livestock doesn’t need to be in the passenger cabin.

No kidding.

I simply can't imagine what kind of emotional condition a person could have that is improved by a peacock. Their earsplitting calls would put anyone on edge, especially up close.

And I like peacocks, and have enjoyed having them around - on sufficient acreage.

Good

Cause the first time that thing decided to "shriek" everyone else will want to strangle it.... then get painkillers for the headaches/migraines it caused.....and possibly sue for allowing it on in the first place

Good. Imagine if the Peacock started panicking for whatever reason! Why can't the passenger have something like a cat or dog?

There's nothing quite as soothing and therapeutic as a shrieking peacock. A neighborhood woman has two "for therapy" because zoning wouldn't otherwise allow them. She can get past the zoning rules by calling it a therapy animal. I'm considering a therapy wolf to go play with the peacocks.

Good.

About time, sooo sick of freaks needing 'emotional support' creatures in planes because of the 'trauma' they suffered from not being able to buy an espresso from their local Starbucks.

How did our parents and grandparents survive just fine on airplanes without these 'emotional support' creatures? I can't imagine a survivor of Iwo Jima or Hamburger Hill needing these animals to travel.

i flew weekly for three decades, in the US and abroad, and never encountered a single service animal on a flight. i fly occasionally now that i'm retired and have never seen a service animal. these stories in the press of service animals seem to be a needle in a haystack.

I've seen a few dogs. Also seen a few passengers that simply drink themselves unconscious rather then face their fear of flying....So emotional support animals are a thing, but theyve always been well behaved.
