My wife and I were on a PALS flight (PALS = Patient Airlift Services) and we had an Afghanistan war refugee and her helper-dog, Oscar, whom we took to Columbus, Ohio.
Approaching Columbus information Oscar was current on ATIS. I told the controller, “We have Oscar.”
After we landed, the lady whom Oscar was helping asked me, “Why did you need to tell him you had Oscar?”
