Yes, NAGDU is aware of the new policy and is working to find a solution with Delta.

That guide dog is part of me. I shouldn't have to prove he is vaccinated any more than anyone else has to prove they have gotten their flu shot. I am kind of surprised that Delta even has the legal right to make rules like this. This is not my understanding of my rights under the Air Carrier Access Act.
