  1. Sorry, Gary – the rabbit story is not the best thing I’ll see all day. There are those of us who are seriously allergic to rabbits, just like people are allergic to dogs and cats. Had I been stuck in that seat for a transpacific flight before a thorough cleaning (which it probably still hasn’t had 2 years later), I would have been miserable.

    It doesn’t matter how cute the animal is (unless it’s Baby Yoda) – the rules are there to protect other people.

  2. Such a cute bunny, I always remember the cartoon with Bugs and Daffy…

    “Oh, what a cute little pink bunny rabbit! Just what I always wanted. My own little bunny rabbit. I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him…”

  3. Emotional support bunnies would not be of interest if airlines would treat customers with respect and decency and not cram too many, too small seats into crowded spaces.
    The road to hell is paved with cute distractions.
    Geez Louise.

  4. My biggest concern would be tripping over the bunny in the reduced lighting. Poor eyesight. It is why I only travel first or business class anymore. A fall like that at my age would not be good.
