Beautiful bird! I saw another pic of her holding him, and he was resting his head at her shoulder, as if cuddling or dozing. I also noted a harness on him (only visible just below his neck, which implies a DIAPER, which many bird owners use on their pet chickens, etc. I also have a friend who owned a peahen for many years who would come into the house in winter, going to her crate to sleep. The airlines need to LIGHTEN UP, and passengers who object, even suggesting maybe these people shouldn't fly are simply rude and certainly insensitive. I don't own one, so don't assume anything from my comment. I DO feed a few cats that come around. I'd rather take that peacock on a flight than any of the cats I know.
