Airline pet policies raise some passengers' dander

06/3/2009 | Denver Post, The

With Southwest Airlines joining the list of carriers allowing pets in the cabin, some passengers with allergies are complaining they have nowhere left to fly. A company spokesman said such complaints "were not something we had heard prior to rolling out" the new policy, but notes that passengers with pet allergies can be re-accommodated, similar to those with peanut allergies. Other airlines agree that pets onboard are rarely an issue.

"We work with people, or move them, but it really has not been a big, big problem."
