• Alaska Airlines: ‘No More Free Flights For Emotional Support Dogs'

    19 days ago - By iHeart Dogs

    For many years emotional support dogs have been treated the same as service dogs on flights. They've been allowed on board for no extra cost and often no questions asked.

    Alaska Airlines will be the first to change their rules since the announcement. ESAs will no longer get the same benefits as specially trained service dogs.
