Naked passenger causes chaos, a hamster as emotional support pet?

 Ripped from the headlines

Flying is fearsome enough without having to deal with passengers trying to bring peacocks and hamsters on board as ‘support pets’ and others stripping naked  on a flight. Give us a break. It's gotten out of control.  And then there's the consequences of erratic actions such as dragging passengers off  planes, punching them, gagging and more alleged reactions to situations.
Yep, according today’s Internet news releases, a college student flushed her pet hamster down a toilet after Spirit Airlines wouldn't let her fly with the animal, according to her attorney. She says the airline suggested she pull the plug on Pebbles. But also said the airline initially said she could bring the rodent on board.
Spirit has denied that one of its employees suggested that she flush the hamster.
Next, during an Alaska Airlines flight to Seattle a passenger locked himself in the bathroom, took off all his clothes, and refused to follow crew instructions.
Kate Danyluk, a passenger on the flight, told The Associated Press she knew something was wrong because the flight attendants kept going back and forth in the aisles and had put on rubber gloves.
"Alaska Airlines flight 146 from Anchorage to Seattle returned to Anchorage due to a passenger not following flight attendant's instructions. While no emergency was declared, the decision was made to return to Anchorage," Alaska Airlines spokesman Tim Thompson said in an email.Then there was the incident a week or so ago when a women claimed she had to travel with her peacock which sounds like poppy cock to this frequent flyer.

Give me a break.
