Woman reportedly caught breastfeeding cat on flight refuses to stop even after crew asks her to

The alleged incident is said to have taken place during a recent trip on board Delta Flight 1360, a route that travels between Syracuse, New York, and Atlanta, Georgia

A woman on a Delta Airlines flight was reportedly caught by their crew trying to breastfeed a cat mid-flight, and she refused to stop even after the staff told her to do so, reports Newsweek

The alleged incident is said to have taken place during a recent trip onboard Delta Flight 1360, a route that travels between Syracuse, New York, and Atlanta, Georgia. A now-viral message posted on social media shows a screenshot of an Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) message from the pilot to the ground, which says “Req. Redcoat meet AC Pax (passenger) in (seat) 13A is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in its carrier when FA (flight attendant) requested.”

Red Coats are “elite airport customer service experts,” according to Delta, reports WFLA



 

Though there is not much information about the incident, flight attendant Ainsley Elizabeth, who allegedly was on the flight, shared a video on TikTok on November 13, 2021. “This woman had one of those, like, hairless cats swaddled up in a blanket so it looked like a baby. Her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to latch and she wouldn’t put the cat back in the carrier. And the cat was screaming for its life.”

"What does she do at home if she's doing that in public?" she asked. "And then security met the flight just to tell her that she couldn't do that again, cause it was quite weird and gross."

People also were quite baffled over the whole thing and left comments under the post on Twitter. One user wrote: "I dont know what people do in their homes that their private business but breastfeeding an animal (apart from human babies) in a public space is next level stuff. I am pretty sure we have not advanced to this stage as a society and it's super weird."



 

Another person pointed out that there could have also been people who were allergic to cats and this woman didn't even bother to consider them. "The most alarming part to me is the cat. I'm pretty allergic to cat dander, and I doubt I'm the only one. If we can't even have a tiny bag containing seven honey-roasted peanuts with our diet Coke these days, wtf is this?" they questioned

Delta airlines reportedly allow its passengers to bring small dogs and cats as “emotional support animals” into the cabin during a flight, but the rule states that they must stay in a carrier under the seat in front for the entire flight. However, Delta says they have seen passengers interpret “emotionally supportive” to mean “comfort turkeys, gilding possums…snakes, spiders, and more” over the years.
