American Airlines Stops Hero Service Dog From Boarding Plane Home



Shame on you, American Airlines – it sounds like the company is full of hot air when it comes to its pet-friendly travel policies. Axel, a service dog and newly crowned Hero Dog winner, was denied access to his flight home after the awards ceremony.


Let’s award the prize for “sucking the life right out of a warm and fuzzy moment” to American Airlines for their short-sighted and arbitrary decision to ban a canine hero from his flight home.

Boycott American Airlines show your displeasure with your wallet. It's all they understand.

I hope American Airlines is smart enough to step up and donate a hefty amount to K9's for Warriors.

It was one butthead employee.

Only takes one jerk who is on a power trip to make an entire company look bad.

Such incidents are becoming increasingly common like the two seeing eye dogs and their owners who recently were also denied a return flight home.

It appears that part of the problem is the increasing number of dogs who are falsely presented as service dogs and then you have service dogs that are poorly selected and trained and have endangered the public. Businesses have been forced to become increasingly skeptical.

It doesn't matter what the Airline says. It's a federal law with the ADA. I have never been denied.
