Breakfast Buzz: Emotional Support Peacock Grounded at Airport


If you take flights often, We have some bad news for your bathroom breaks. That story tops this morning’s Breakfast Buzz. 

American Airlines has debuted a new plane and both customers and flight attendants agree, it’s lacking in lavatory space. 24.5 inches wide, 10 inches more narrow if you’re keeping score. Customers and flight attendants have complained the sinks are so tiny, they can only wash one hand at a time. The L.A. Times is reporting that when both bathroom doors are opened at the rear of the plane, flight attendants are virtually trapped in the back. American Airlines has said it’s working to fix that issue.

A record 245 guns were confiscated at security checkpoints at Hartsfield-Jackson airport last year.  TSA  officials say 222 of those guns were loaded. Dallas Fort Worth was second with 211 firearms discovered and Houston Bush Intercontinental airport came in third with 142.

Office romances are at a 10 year low. According to CareerBuilder’s annual Valentine’s Day survey,  36% of workers reported dating a co-worker. That’s down from 41% last year and 40% in 2008.
 For those who chose to date a co-worker, CareerBuilder suggests setting ground rules to help remain professional in the office and keeping the relationship details private.

An emotional support animal was denied a flight on United Airlines over the weekend. The peacock was turned away when the customer arrived at Newark Liberty International airport in New Jersey.
 Among other things, the airline said the peacock’s size and weight did not meet its guidelines for a service animal. United also said the customer was told on three separate occasions before arriving at the airport that the peacock would not be able to fly.
