Delta Airlines passenger ‘sucking cat looks like a baby’

A woman is said to have been trying to breastfeed her hairless cat while on board a Delta Airlines flight – and refused to stop when told by a flight attendant.

The horrific incident on Delta Flight 1360 from Syracuse, New York, to Atlanta, Georgia, was forwarded by an airline employee to the Aircraft Contacts and Reporting System (ACARS). The message said that a passenger in seat 13A was ‘breasting the cat and will not return the cat to the airline when (flight attendant) requests it’, Newsweek reported.

Flight attendant Ainsley Elizabeth shares more details about TikTok.

‘This woman has one of the hairless cats wrapped in a blanket so it looks like a baby,’ Ainsley said in the 11/13 video.

‘Her shirt was propped up and she was trying to get the cat to latch and she wouldn’t put the cat back on the rack. And the cat is screaming for its life. ‘

In a November 2 post on TikTok, Ainsley said that security officers responded to the incident.

The Delta employee who sent a text message during the flight asked the airline’s Red Jacket team to meet the passenger when the plane landed. Red Coats are ‘the airport’s elite customer service specialist, recognizable by their bright red coats’, ‘specially trained to handle ongoing customer issues’ , the airline’s website claims.

It is not clear what happened to the passengers after the plane landed.

The incident went viral after a screenshot of a message sent by Delta employees to the ground was shared on social media.

According to the airline’s website, the airline “fully supports the right of women to breastfeed on Delta and Delta connecting aircraft and within Delta facilities.” Delta allows passengers to bring small cats, dogs, and birds into the cabin for an additional fee and the pets must be kept in a carrier that fits in the seat in front of them.

Delta’s breastfeeding policy doesn’t cover animals, but it’s unlikely to apply.
