Southwest Airlines has become the latest US airline to ban emotional support animals, following the footsteps of Delta, American, United and Alaska Airlines.
On Monday the airline announced it will only allow passengers to bring trained service dogs in the cabin and will no longer accept support animals starting March 1.
