Put airline animals in the back

I’m sympathetic to people who have anxiety about air travel, or anxiety in general, and need to have a pet with them. I’m highly allergic to dogs and cats. So, I do have an answer for the writer of the Jan. 28 letter “What about fliers with animal allergies?”

My husband and I fly often. I always pay an extra charge for “even more space” seats. In the past, I’ve asked flight attendants on Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and JetBlue about being seated next to an animal. They’ve told me, in that case, I would have to move my seat.

I’ve replied that I paid for the extra-space seating, so why must I move?

There should be a designated area in the back of planes for animals.
