American Airlines Passenger Bought Himself Two Seats For His Dog

American Airlines Passenger Bought Himself Two Seats For His Dog

Airline policies regarding dogs in the cabin can vary depending on the airline and the specific circumstances. While some airlines do allow dogs in the cabin, there are certain restrictions and requirements that must be met.

Here one of passengers in American Airlines bought two seats for his dog and one for himself. On TikTok, a user known as @gibbon1215 uploaded a video of them taking their gorgeous female Great Dane named Darwin on a flight. Darwin was, indeed, seated next to her owner, spread out across two coach seats.

“Who says Great Danes aren’t airplane dogs,” reads the poster’s caption. “Shoutout to @American Airlines for making our move to Brooklyn a piece of cake though! (Yes I bought 3 seats for us on the plane).”

People are generally amused and charmed with the idea in the comments section. “Immediately requests seat change to be closer to pup,” one person said in a comment. A second one proceeded in the same manner. “The baby next to me wrecked my mood.

@gibbon1215 Replying to @Parker Roberts Hope this helps answer some questions I’ve been getting! This was just my experience flying with her, but happy to answer more questions, and I have endless content of her. 🐶 #greatdane #dog #crohnsdisease #tiktok #fyp #ostomate ♬ original sound – Gibbon

The original poster felt forced to provide a few clarifications when the video went viral (with more than 7.6 million views, 1.4 million likes, and the comment area exploding), mostly to calm people’s concerns about why American Airlines let Darwin fly in coach in the first place. The response is far more straightforward than you may imagine, and it is also a really good one. Darwin is a service dog in concept.

Gibbon1215 tells their a story that “I have Crohn’s disease,” the poster says in the video, outlining their particular living condition and how Darwin is a service dog to assist them. The focus then turned to how the poster managed to get Darwin on an aircraft.

The poster says, “I considered driving her myself, renting a plane, or having someone else drive her, but none of those options seemed really viable, and when I asked how big was the crate underneath the plane, she ended up being bigger than the largest crate available.” So I started looking into pet-friendly airlines and making calls. I called American Airlines and spoke to a representative, and I learned that if you have a service dog, regardless of size, they are legally permitted to board the aircraft.

They enquired as to whether Darwin’s 140-pound weight was relevant. The solution? Definitely not! Simply feel comfortable and let her feel comfortable. When they asked about buying three seats for them at that point, their request was approved.

From then, everything went quite well; Darwin’s owner merely had to complete a form with the Department of Transportation, and shortly after that, Darwin was accepted and was given an identification number for the journey.

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air Rolls Out Next-Generation Business Class: ‘Prestige Suites 2.0’

Korean Air has introduced its latest business class offering, the Prestige Suites 2.0, set to make its debut aboard the airline’s new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner fleet.

This new product marks a significant upgrade from the previous Collins Apex forward-facing staggered seats, known as Prestige Suites. The Prestige Suites 2.0 is designed in a staggered 1-2-1 configuration, ensuring each passenger direct aisle access and ample privacy.

The seats offer 46 inches of pitch, 21 inches of width, and can be transformed into a flat bed measuring between 78.2 and 79.2 inches. A standout feature of these seats is the inclusion of privacy doors that stand 52 inches high, offering a more secluded experience even when positioned closer to the aisle.

Tech-savvy travelers will appreciate the suite’s cutting-edge features, which include a 23.8-inch ultra-high-definition entertainment monitor, 60W USB-C charging, AC power outlets, and wireless charging capabilities.

Moreover, Korean Air’s Boeing 787-10s will be the first in the fleet to offer Wi-Fi, enhancing connectivity for passengers. The new business class seats come with a range of amenities aimed at maximizing comfort and convenience. These include a storage cubby, a handheld remote, USB-C charging ports, and universal outlets.

The wireless charging pad is a notable highlight, reflecting the suite’s advanced technological integration. The layout of the Prestige Suites 2.0 comprises 10 rows of seats in a 1-2-1 arrangement, specifically rows 7-16 in the business class cabin. The cabin is flanked by lavatories and galleys at both the front and the rear, ensuring easy access for all passengers.

A striking departure from Korean Air’s traditional design, the new seats feature a bold brown color palette. This is a significant change from the airline’s iconic Morning Calm blue and bright white interiors.

The new design incorporates semi-matte deep brown side consoles with metallic tops, brushed coppery-almond cabinet doors, and textured tan interior shrouds, giving the cabin a modern and sophisticated look.
