    A year or two ago, there was a woman flying out of Bradley Airport in Hartford and flying to DC with her 70 lb. support pig. She somehow snuck it on the plane - go figure! Once on the plane, other passengers could smell the pig. It caused quite the commotion (running in aisle, leaving presents along the way). My boss happened to be on that flight. They eventually took the woman and her pig off the plane.

    Haha...I might have a bigger challenge sneaking them on the plane. They average 700 pounds each.

    I agree that some people absolutely need service animals, but those that have them should have a certificate of training that must be provided upon request in order to be allowed on a plane, in a hotel, etc...Not to be indifferent to those that need them, but those folks that don't should be fined and fined quite a bit to punish them for their incredible dishonesty and for the nonsense others must endure because of their untrained animals !!!
    While I am on my soapbox....Why would you want to bring your animal to Aruba anyway ??? It's inhumane to leave them in a room all day AND inhumane to keep them with you in the sun all day, plus the trauma putting them on a plane......geez, they should be arrested for torturing their pets !!!!!

    If they need a support animal that much, why are they left in the hotel?

    I just saw this on the news. Crazy. I like that they are requiring training. It is just too easy for someone to buy a doctor's note online and vests with badges too. However, I guess you'll probably will be able to buy fake training certificates too. They should make an animal demonstrate that they are trained. My SIL emotional support dog does not listen, is not disciplined and is not trained to follow the simplest commands, barks at everything, and runs her life. Sir Pee Alot (because he will pee in my house) is probably the only dog who has ever gotten on my last nerve(and I love dogs).

    I'd rather have a service dog in the cabin over the perfume/cologne abusers. Back away from the White Linen, honey...

    A person tried to bring a Peacock on a United flight for emotional support yesterday but was denied. The tail had to be 3 feet long. Imagine that in your face for a flight to Aruba. If you look on Ebay, you can buy the service dog vest, I.D lanyard and ADA cards to hand out as proof, no questions asked. We have a dog and would love to bring to hotels that don't allow dogs and fly with us. But some people have no shame. There has to be a better way to regulate this concern for the people who really need a service dog.
