Can a person with a disability take their service animal in the cabin with them on a plane?

Yes, on flights originating and arriving at points in the U.S. or U.S. territories. The Air Carrier Access Act requires air carriers to permit service animals to travel in the cabin with their disabled handlers unless an animal physically does not fit in the space allotted to the traveler and there is no other space on board to accommodate them. If the animal will not fit in the cabin, the air carrier must offer to transport the animal as cargo free of charge.
