Airline Travel Needs More Kitties and Puppies
Since a lot of us are dealing with stressful airline travel on our way home for the holidays – an estimated 38 million of us – we’ve got a couple of stories about adorable animals in airplanes and airports to help us out.
The first one is about a cat that somehow got out of its carrier on a Delta plane and encountered a flight attendant who was NOT happy to see it.
The video shows the thoroughly grumpy woman shooing the cat out of the attendants’ area and calling over the intercom for the animal’s owner to come claim it. “I need them to come and get their pet,” she announced curtly, telling other passengers to wake them up if necessary.
United Airlines understands that some of us would enjoy meeting a pet during our travels, however – they’ve started a program to bring dogs to airports to help travelers relax.
More than 230 trained comfort dogs are currently hanging out at the airport in Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Neward and Washington – so keep an eye out for them if you want cuddles.
