Animals on Planes – level 2

19-08-2019 07:00

The American Department of Transportation sent out guidelines for airlines and passengers. The department says that airlines can no longer ban specific types of cats or dogs.

For instance, this is something that Delta Air Lines did last year. It banned “pit bull type dogs” because some employees were bitten by them. However, airlines can still say that they will not take an animal on board if it looks dangerous.

For example, passengers who need the help of service animals do not have to let airlines know in advance that they are taking the animal. However, if you are bringing an animal for “emotional support”, you have to let the airline know ahead of time.

Difficult words: guidelines (instructions), in advance (before, ahead of time), support (help).
