A woman named Juanie had an interesting experience on a recent Delta Air Lines flight. She boarded and found a 50-pound dog in her seat. The dog’s owner asked if she would mind giving up her seat for the pitbull and was agitated after she refused. She Tweeted the experience in a series of posts on Sunday.

I’m not sure how the passenger was able to board with this dog as it’s too large to fit under a seat and doesn’t appear to be designated as a service animal.

The dog behaved (although it did cause some damage to Juanie’s purse by stepping on it), but its owner thought it was okay for her to vape in flight (which, like smoking cigarettes, is against federal law). The dog owner was rude on several fronts. She should have purchased a second seat for her dog and should not have been vaping in flight.

Anthony’s Take: Just like passengers of size taking up more than their purchased space, this woman should have thought about her fellow travelers and not just assumed others would be okay with her dog taking up their space.

If the dog took her seat, where exactly was she supposed to sit? An impressive screwup by Delta to allow the dog on the plane in these circumstances.
