    I have bought a ticket for my mini dachshund on USAirways. She still has to fit under the seat but I get 2 seats. And for some flights it is actually less expensive than the carry on charge.

    Southwest Airlines accepts small vaccinated domestic cats and dogs. All in-cabin pets must be carried in an appropriate carrier, as indicated below and are subject to a $75 pet fare each way per pet carrier. The pet carrier counts as either a carryon item or a personal item.

    Air Canada will allow you to carry your pet with you. I think your pet is obedient and good !!

    It is likely that you pet will have to travel as checked baggage in an IATA compliant pet crate. The pets are placed in a special section of the cargo hold where the temperature and pressure is the same as in the cabin. If you are flying out of a very cold city an acclimation certificate may be required. You can find everything you need for the same and comfortable transport of your pet at [url]www.pettravelstore.com[/url]

    Why do airlines and the FAA hate dogs? If someone wants to buy an extra seat for a pet carrier, and strap it into the seat-belt system so that it does not move, why punish those with pets larger than a teacup dog? If the airlines and the FAA truly understand that we view our four legged family members as family then why relegate them to cargo as if they were mere pieces of furniture...

    If your pet is the size of a teacup or you are willing to put them in cargo then yes they do...I have a thirty pound Shelties he is never going to fit under the seat. Airlines secretly hate dogs...

    Nowadays some airlines allow traveling with a pet. All you need is an emotional support dog certificate from a professional attorney. But that certificate is only for a people who are legally disabled and the dog performs one or more tasks for them or if their behaviors that mitigate their disability.

    Sheltie - no commercial airline will allow a pet to sit on a seat between passengers. If your Sheltie is an emotional support animal, it can sit on your lap or at your feet. Service animals are supposed to sit at their handlers feet. Otherwise, live animals must be in a carrier under the seat in front of you. Airline rules.

    If you are referring to the US, most all major airlines allow small dogs and cats in the cabin.

    Some airlines allow you to take small pets with you but in their carrier and they must be comfortable in their carrier and you can bring them along with you under your seat.
