Bizarre airline regulations revealed

Bizarre airline regulations revealed
19 Feb 2014

When booking a flight, few customers bother to read the conditions of carriage imposed by the airline. 

However, Fox News has been reading them closely and has uncovered some bizarre airline regulations that govern everything from how you dress to how you smell. 

According to the news provider, most airlines say 'no' to bare feet, while American Airlines reserves the right to refuse boarding to passengers with 'an offensive odour'. 

Animals are also covered in the terms and conditions, with United Airlines happy to welcome dogs and monkeys on board, but not snakes, ferrets or spiders. Delta's rules extend to dead wildlife, with passengers able to transport racks of antlers as long as they are clean. 

While these are fairly uncommon circumstances, most passengers are probably unaware that the majority airlines don't permit valuables to be carried in checked bags. If you do and something happens to them, you won't be compensated.ADNFCR-408-ID-801695124-ADNFCR
