Moesha took her seat on the jetliner. Behind her sat a turkey.
Her experience was unusual, but not unique. The New York Daily News reports that Delta Airlines permits passengers who need emotional support during flight to bring their turkeys:
Delta allowed the turkey to gobble on the flight through its compliance with the Air Carrier Access Act, which lets customers travel on the airline with their emotional support animals.
“While we can’t always accommodate all pets, Delta employees made a judgment call based in part on extensive documentation from the customer,” a Delta spokesperson said in a statement, regarding the turkey.
The turkey was spotted in a photo on a seat and also in a wheelchair being moved around the airport.
I'm not surprised. As God as my witness I thought turkeys could fly.
