They must be leashed or have a harness and may not growl, bite, or jump.

The airline issued a list of animals - even those kept for emotional support - that will be banned from flights, due to "safety and/or public health risks". American said that from 2016 to 2017, the number of cases increased by more than 40 percent.

Emotional support and service animals are allowed to fly in the cabin at no extra fee provided they are fully trained, but American Airlines emphasized it would enforce all pet requirements and applicable fees if the animal did not meet its travel criteria.

While many critics believe pets on planes have gotten out of hand, Pratt says it's important to remember the people who truly need them. But they would no longer receive the protections against discrimination afforded by the Air Carrier Access Act.

Delta Airlines and United Airlines also announced updated policies this year regarding what animals the airlines will allow in the cabin as emotional support for passengers. "Emotional support animals are not fully task-trained".
