Indian government may allow guide dogs to fly

Notice the “may”. So far to go.

Following a number of incidents that showed how uncaring some domestic airlines are towards the physically challenged, the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) is working on new rules to facilitate travel of such passengers that may come into effect from as early as January 1, 2008.

If airlines agree to this proposal, the guide will be seated next to the passenger who would have to purchase a ticket for the dog.
