Subject: [nagdu] filling out a survey on Delta
> Hello all. As you know, I had some difficulties when traveling with Delta
> airlines earlier this week. I filled out an on line form about my
> experiense. Most of it was checking boxes, but they had the categories of
> rating I needed to get my point across. Below, I'm putting what I wrote in
> the additional comments section.
> I feel that the gate agents and security need to be educated about service
> dogs. The security guard forced me to remove my dog's harness, leash, and
> collar because he did not feel like patting him down. This could have
> posed a danger to my dog, as he could have gotten loose. The gate agent
> tried to force me to sit in a bulk head seat even though I told her that
> the ADA permited me to sit where I chose as long as it wasn't an exit
> rowe. In front of the entire seating area, she said that I could either
> sit there or not fly. This type of treatment makes me think twice before
> booking with Delta in the future, and I hope that noone else with a
> service animal is treated in this manner.
> There was enough information in the main part of the survey to cover the
> rest. I'm hoping this gets the point across so we don't have a repeat of
> this situation in the future.
