In case you missed it, "Live & Let Fly" reported earlier this week that an unnamed United Airlines traveler tried bringing her emotional support peacock on a flight out of Newark's Liberty Airport. Her request was shot down - even though she had a second ticket for it, but the airline still denied the bird board because of concerns about passenger safety.
United says the “animal did not meet the guidelines for a number of reasons, including its weight and size.” But they also say this shouldn't have been a shock as they told the customer that on three separate occasions - in advance that her bird wasn't gonna fly with them.
So what happened? The woman - now identified as New York artist Ventiko, says some "human friends" agreed to drive her and Dexter on the thousand mile journey. And are we shocked to hear that Dexter has his own Instagram account? Of course not.
