This past Monday, on American Airlines Flight 3506 flying from Dallas-Fort Worth to Piedmont Triad International Airport, an Envoy Air Flight Attendant and AFA member was bitten by an emotional support dog.  AFA International issued the following statement:

“What happened on yesterday’s American Airlines flight is completely unacceptable and inexcusable. For years, AFA has supported the role trained animals can provide to passengers in the cabin, but we have also called for action in regards to setting standards for emotional support animals. We need the Department of Transportation to take action now, so events like the one that happened yesterday do not continue to occur on our planes. This is fundamentally about maintaining safety, health and security for passengers and crew, while ensuring accessibility for those who need it.”
