This extraordinary scene took place on an American Airlines flight from Chicago to Omaha. On what would otherwise seem like a normal day.
In the corridor leading to the plane, passengers were shocked to see a fellow passenger leading her pony casually onto the plane.
Animal on board
Why? This isn’t the first time something like this has happened in the United States. In fact, we are seeing more and more stories about people who have a fear of flying taking horses onto planes for ‘emotional support’.
After a passenger filmed this scene and shared the video on Twitter, this amusing story got quite a lot of attention on social media.
As well as horses, passengers can also take other animals on planes with them, and more and more people are deciding to do so, although some breeds of dog aren’t allowed on board under any circumstances.
