The flight attendant would not allow the plane to take off because the guide dog was not fully under the plane's seat.

Stupid flight attendant.

Everyone knows seeing-eye dogs go in the overhead compartment.

Who flies from philly to islip anyways?

Blind people, I guess.

I would be pissed if my 15 minute flight was delayed for 90 minutes.

The dog looks way too big to even fit under the seat. It's not a f*cking chihuahua. USAir sucks, and now that it's merging with another sucky airline it's going to create a supersuck airline of epic proportions.

I know blind people are gross but that's just too much.
 
2013-11-14 11:25:14 AM  
He probably just didn't know he had to put the dog under the seat.  The stewardess should have spoken louder.

US Air sucks for disabled passenger service (I know this personally) but they are now merging with American who really is pretty good. It will be interesting to see what direction their service takes.

If a person with dog allergies and a person with a service dog are booked on the same flight who gets bumped?

Was he swinging the dog around by the tail so he could look for his seat?

No, but they were charged a "convenience fee" for getting off early.

The person with the allergies.  Well, in my view anyway.  If your biggest problem is allergies, I think it pales in comparison to blindness.  Besides, the planes air is recirculated and filtered.  So the allergies shouldn't be much of an issue.

Now, back to TFA.  These idiots left the plane sitting there for an hour and a half.  The fact that the dog started getting restless only proves one thing.  It's a dog.  It cannot be expected to be so patient in a situation that it only remotely understands.  And there really is no excuse for such a long delay.
 
2013-11-14 12:08:27 PM  
This is the dail fail so the real story is probably something like this guy's dog bit enough people on the plane that the flight had to be canceled.
 
2013-11-14 12:09:35 PM  
FTFA: "We've spoken with the crew members involved and they deny..."

Exactly, they will agree on anything that will get them out of trouble and fits their story. We should interview passengers, not crew, the crew are the attackers, not the victims!!
 
2013-11-14 12:09:41 PM  
Yes, because if there is one group of people that you want to pick on, its blind people.  Blind people are the worst.  Always wandering around our world like they have a right to exist and having special rights, like help from service animals.  What nerve!
 
2013-11-14 12:10:19 PM  
The passengers are revolting.

Most people I know who have severe allergy issues carry around medication in case they run into an unexpected situation.

Did the previous regulation outlaw being an asshole to a blind man?  If anything, regulation would have protected the shiatty employee. Deregulation has led to increased usage and significantly lowered cost without most of the ill effects the regulation lovers suggested would happen.  Airline profits are actually down per passenger mile.  The market works.  It's as simple as that.  Jimmy Carter got it right.

None of the stewardesses I have seen during my travels have looked good enough to let me have them touch my junk with their claws. *shudder*

Yeah, service dogs are typically known for being disruptive.

I have to agree with those claiming that US Air is a horrible airline. I won't fly them anymore. I'm down to Alaska, Southwest, and Hawaiian, but I haven't flown any international carriers.

With US Airways merging finally going through, you should expect poorer service, higher ticket prices, and more extra charges.  Years ago, I had enough frequent flier miles for a R/T ticket to London.  US Air merged with another airline and the rules changed. First the mileage requirement was increased, then USAir gave the option of buying additional miles. I have not flown USAir since.

Part of the problem is the plane is in a chair. Good luck taxiing never mind taking off

I love that his fellow passengers stood up for him. You know that if the guy was at fault, they would have been clapping for his removal as he disrupted their plans. They need to interview the other passengers and see how many actually saw the arguement and can tell how the crew acted.

/airlines packs them in a tin can and leave them for 90 mins. Then wonder why they'll turn on you when you single out the guy who can't fight back.
//dog is too big to be crammed under a seat, poor pup needed his own.

This.  I haven't flown since 9/11.  It has become too much trouble to:

A)  Have the airline jerk you around and fark your flight/sit on the runway for 1/2 day - why do they even bother to have schedules?
B)  Have to show up at the airport 2 hours early so you can
C)  Be X-rayed or felt-up by some pervy TSA "officer"
D)  Charge extra for suitcases.  Fark you with BS fees and taxes they pulled out of their a*ses so that the ticket costs twice the advertised price.
E)  Have seating accomodations similar to the size and comfort of a gestation crate.

So yeah vudukungfu - FARK them.

Did you know that seeing eye dogs are so good that the US military uses them with their blind snipers?

I don't get the "I won't fly X" sentiment. All airlines sucks. Some may suck slightly less than others, but they all suck giant donkey balls. If you refused to fly on a shiatty airlines, good luck getting anyways. I always go into it expecting to get farked (and not in a good way). If I come out the other end on time and without too much discomfort, I consider it a bonus.
 
2013-11-14 12:48:14 PM  
If the dog really had become restless and couldn't stay out of the way, then it wouldn't have been too much trouble for them to issue him a taxi voucher.

What is John McAfee doing on a plane with a guide dog?

lack of warmth: I agree with the passengers, if the pilot can stay on the plane with his guide dog.....


The entrance opens, two men dressed in pilots' uniforms walk up the aisle. Both are wearing dark glasses, one is using a guide dog, and the other is tapping his way along the aisle with a cane. Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start up.
        The passengers begin glancing nervously around, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming.
        The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and the people sitting in the window seats realize they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport territory. As it begins to look as though the plane will plough into the water, panicked screams fill the cabin.
        At that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly, and soon all retreat into their magazines, secure in the knowledge that the plane is in good hands.
        In the cockpit, one of the blind pilots turns to the other and says, "You know, Frank, one of these days, they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna die."
