Flight # 2056 on 12/26/2020 I travel with my dog often, and usually on Southwest. The typical experience has been positive, however, this last flight irritated me. Boarding the plane with a back pack and my dog carrier in hand - my blue Southwest carrier. I set the dog carrier on the seat to remove my back pack and put it in the overhead storage and the flight attendant came running over and told me that I couldn't set my dog carrier on the seat, I had to put it on the floor. I tried to explain to him that I was going to put it under my seat as soon as I got rid of the back pack but he said I had to put the dog under the seat first. - What is the big deal? The passenger in front of me had an emotional support dog on his lap and there was a couple w a huge labradoodle in the bulkhead area. Those dogs were not in carriers. My dog was contained in the carrier and I was just trying to get rid of the back pack before moving into the seating area. Since I paid $95 to bring my dog along, I would have expected a better attitude from the flight attendant. Because my travel experiences with the dog have always been positive, this guys attitude was really disappointing.
