According to the New York Post, a woman on a Delta flight traveling from Syracuse, New York to Atlanta, Georgia created a commotion by breastfeeding her hairless cat after exposing her breasts. Despite being instructed by a flight attendant to discontinue this behavior, the woman persisted. It's hard to fathom what's happening with people these days!
1. A Message Was Sent Back To Crew On The Ground About The Woman's Behavior
Delta staff in Atlanta were notified about the passenger seated in 13A through a message sent via the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS): "is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in its carrier when [flight attendant requested]."
2. A Flight Attendant On Board The Flight Took To TikTok To Explain What Happened
As per Newsweek's report, Ainsley Elizabeth, a flight attendant, disclosed on TikTok that... "security met the flight because a woman was breastfeeding her cat." In a subsequent video posted on November 13, she said: "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."
3. No, The Woman Didn't Get In Trouble
Rather than taking strict action, Ainsley disclosed that the security personnel simply cautioned her against repeating the action. "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 weird and gross."

"Delta fully supports a woman's right to breastfeed on board Delta and Delta Connection aircraft and in Delta facilities. Breast pumps are allowed on board. At the airport and if you prefer, many airports do offer private lactation rooms or spaces," Nevertheless, I don't believe that animals are encompassed in that...
