ATLANTA — If you're planning a flight longer than eight hours, Delta Air Lines says you can't bring anwith you.
The rules for pups are getting tighter too. Neithernor trained service animals will be allowed on any Delta flights if they're under 4 months old.
Delta said the changes take effect Dec. 18.
The airline noted that exceptions will be made until Feb. 1 for customers who already bought a ticket and asked to bring a support animal.
Airlines are tightening rules on animals, saying their numbers have skyrocketed and some have relieved themselves or bitten other animals — and in one case, a Delta passenger. People who fill out the forms to travel with a support animal avoid pet-carriage fees.
