AirTran really sucks when it comes to pets. The carrier they require is teeny. My small cat can not fit in it. But they don't tell you this until you purchase a ticket. Also, the pet has to stay under the seat the entire trip. Completely un-friendly to pets. Southwest bought AirTran and both my husband and I are cancelling our Southwest Credit Cards and Rapid Rewards - I used to love flying Southwest now they have no more direct flights to where I travel and they have ridiculous teeny-tiny pet carrier requirements that only a mouse would feel comfortable in. Bye Bye AirTran and Southwest! Who are the most pet-friendly airlines out there?
