The denial reportedly came at Newark International Airport, according to travel talk show The Jet Set via Facebook.

What Do Emotional Support Animals Do, Exactly?

  What Do Emotional Support Animals Do, Exactly? <p>Most emotional support animals are not peacocks. But they can legitimately help people with mental health issues.</p>There's been a lot of debate over the years about emotional support animals and the many forms they may take on a cramped flight. Although most tend to be dogs or cats, we've seen a lot of fowl making their way on board recently: an incredibly fancy chicken, a duck with some very chic footwear, and, now, a very regal peacock making its way through Newark Liberty International Airport.

A woman was not allowed to bring her emotional support animal on a flight . The animal in question was a peacock named Dexter.

Opinions on whether United Airlines was right or wrong will vary, as you can imagine. As a passenger, would you want to be seated next to a peacock, even if it was across the aisle? Some will come to the defense of the woman and feel she should have been allowed to bring her peacock along for emotional support just as some other passenger may be able to bring a dog or cat along with them. Others will applaud the airline for not allowing the peacock on the plane, perhaps out of courtesy for the other passengers. From a business perspective, it is better to have 99% of the passengers happy with you than face any negative criticism over one passenger who may feel slighted by the decision, even if that decision goes viral.

It is unknown at this time if the woman reached her final destination with her peacock. If she did reach her destination, was she able to do so with her peacock by her side or did the peacock have to be stored away elsewhere on the plane?
