  1. This is really about the porcine world’s top 1%.

    First class pigs should not knuckle under; after all, they’re the ones who bring home the bacon.

  2. …while the other 99 percent hock everything they own to get their chops seated in first class cabin?

    Before you know it, you will be crackling’ up, which will get everyone’s snout embroiled in a debate — and that is nothing to spit at…

  3. This whole service animal scam has become a total joke. Just because someone has mental issues (and I don’t mean anxiety. I mean being delusional about the pig being their friend) doesn’t mean the airline and the FAA should give them the right to impose their bullshit on everyone else who paid for a seat. They let a pig in first class. End of story. No balls to say no.

  4. @Mike, I totally agree with you. (And regarding most dogs, as well.)

    That said, post merger, will the former US rule allowing the pig to fly first class for free remain in force?

    Or will 500-mile stickers be required?
