Southwest Airlines to Only Allow Dogs and Cats on Planes

Forget flying with snakes, birds or bunnies. Southwest is the latest airline to change its policies for bringing animals on board.

Next month, only dogs and cats will be considered emotional support animals. The changes start on September 17, 2018. 

You can have one cat or dog. They must be in a carrier or on a leash.

Southwest says from 2016 to 2017, they saw a 30 percent increase in the number of emotional support animals on board.

“I couldn't imagine being away from her,” said Marie Sanchez. She takes her dog Lexie everywhere with her, especially when she travels.

“For one thing, she keeps me from being so afraid of flying, 'cause I do have a fear of that. She's just my everything.”
