True Story

It was 7 AM in the morning and I received a phone call from a lady stranded at the airport (Reagan in Washington DC.) She had just been denied boarding on a flight to Ft. Myers. She had a lap dog, for which she had bought a ticket, and the dog was to ride in the cabin under the seat. What was possibly wrong with this picture?

The dog’s legs were too long and the airline feared for the comfort and safety of the pet. Thus, they denied the lady’s trip to Ft. Myers.

In December 2015 The Department of Transportation reported 17 Pet deaths and 26 injuries.

Do your homework before making reservations. The DOT compiles comprehensive data on flight delays, customer’s complaints, pet deaths and injuries. DOT publication Consumer Air Travel Reports.

There are alternative ways to get your pets moved safely.

You may consider hiring a professional driver for your pet transfer, especially if you are going to be spending some time at your destination. Some auto driveaway companies not only transport your pet, but you can get your personal belongings and your car.

This may be a money saver not having to rent a car or shipping of things you might need, but can’t take on the airlines.
