Delta's New Advance Documentation Requirements Create an Undue Burden on Blind Travelers

a golden lab dog guide

Delta recently announced their intention to implement “advance documentation requirements” for customers traveling with service animals. While news stories about service peacocks, comfort turkeys, and gliding possums may seem alarming and absurd, the fact is that Delta’s proposed solution is an overly broad policy with serious implementation problems. We strongly object to any extra bureaucratic hoops or paperwork, which will clearly impact the right to travel freely for people who are blind or visually impaired.

We know sales representatives who are blind, whose demanding jobs frequently require them to drop everything and head out the next morning to visit a client. This policy would directly impact their ability to fulfill their job requirements. Passengers with dog guides have long been protected under the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other laws.

We join with our colleagues at ACB and NFB in strongly opposing any policies that would create an undue burden and deny equal access of service for passengers with service animals.

Anyone with a computer and a few bucks can get a phony certification for a service pet of any kind. I’m all for any measures that would place restrictions on them. Temporary inconvenience for permanent improvement.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

I've two ideas for solving the support animal issue: The first would be for guide dog approval in pre-screen by TSA, or, by official state identification card. Most individuals who fly frequently are already members of prescreen paid for by their organizations.
