In a bizarre message from Delta Airlines on Flight DL1360 to Atlanta, seemingly from the crew, suggested a woman had been breastfeeding her cat in the cabin and refused to stop what she was doing.
According to the DailyStar, the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System message stated:
“Req Redcoat meet AC Pax (passenger in seat) 13A is breastfeeding a cat and will not put the cat back in its carrier when FA (Flight Attendant) requested.”DA Flight alleged info shared on Twitter
The request for Delta’s Redcoat ground team was made in order to meet the passenger once the flight had landed and passengers off loaded.
According to Newsweek, a flight attendant, Ainsley Elizabeth posted the following on Tik Tok referring to the incident on November 2 stating the “security met the flight because a woman had been breastfeeding her cat.”
“This woman had one of those, like, hairless cats swaddled up in a blanket so it looked like a baby,” Ainsley Elizabeth said in a follow-up video posted on November 13. “Her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to latch and she wouldn’t put the cat back in the carrier. And the cat was screaming for its life.
What does she do at home if she’s doing that in public? And then security met the flight just to tell her that she couldn’t do that again, cause it was weird and gross.”Tik Tok
Most airlines have instituted stricter requirements for pets flying in the cabin after a sharp increase in incidents involving emotional support animals. Small dogs and cats are still permitted in the cabin, but must stay in their carriers during the entire trip.
The crackdown on emotional support animals allowed to fly in the cabin came after the airlines had to permit the strangest animals on board – turkeys, snakes and even emotional support possums, and even though there is substantial proof that these animals can provide relief for people suffering from anxiety such as PTSD, too many of the animals had generally misbehaved and disrupted flights and other passengers.
Delta has not responded to a request verifying the information. We will let you know.
