A woman on Delta flight was seen breastfeeding her cat during travel from Syracuse to Atlanta.
Delta Airline Passengers cat:
The unidentified woman flew from Syracuse, NY to Atlanta, GA, where she was caught breastfeeding her cat. A flight attendant repeatedly told her to stop and put her cat back in the cage, but she refused.
A message was sent via the Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) to alert Delta crew in Atlanta that a passenger in seat 13A was “feeding the cat and at the request of [the flight attendant] the cat she will not return to her carrier. ”
According to Newsweek, flight attendant Einzelle Elizabeth, who was on board the plane at the time of the incident, ticked off on November 13 to find out what had happened.
“This woman had one of them, like, hairless cats wrapped in a blanket, so it looked like a baby,” she said. “Her shirt was up and she was trying to wrap the cat and she wouldn’t put the cat back in the carrier. And the cat was screaming for her life.
Delta allows animals such as small dogs, cats and domestic birds to board domestic flights and “must be able to fit into a small, airy pet carrier.”
The airline’s website also outlines its policies on women who are breastfeeding. “Delta Connection fully support women’s right to breastfeed in airplanes and delta facilities. Breast pumps are permitted on board. At the airport and if you wish, many airport private breastfeeding rooms. Or offer places, “the policy states.
