Airlines cannot ban specific breeds of service and emotional support dogs on airplanes.

Airlines cannot ban specific breeds of service and emotional support dogs on airplanes.

That's according to a new rule by the u-s department of transportation.

However, airlines can determine whether an animal is safe to travel.

The Department of Transportation is giving airlines one month to change its policies.

Delta Airlines, which recently put out a policy banning pit bulls as service or emotional support animals, is now reviewing the new rule.
