The airline industry is losing money when the passengers are cutting travels in the current market downfall. In order to make more money, the airline health allows people to bring pets for an extra charge. However allowing pets inside passenger cabin poses serious health risk to travelers with respiratory problems, like allergies or asthma.
Air inside the cabin is close-circulated, there is not escape from allergens no matter how far your seat from the pet. In some seriously ill patients, even a small dose of allergens from pets could be deadly by causing suffocation. We should not put any human life at risk just to satisfy pet lover’s twisted affections to their pets. Pets belong to the cargo compartment, they should not be allowed riding the plane with human.
