I’m pleased to announce that Dog Jaunt’s “Guides” section now includes a chart setting out the highlights of the major international airlines’ policies for in-cabin pets. I’ve also added it to Dog Jaunt’s sister site, called Pet Carrier Reviews (which has been accumulating more crate and carrier reviews to look at!).
Things that caught my attention: Several of the airlines allow in-cabin pets to travel in slightly larger carriers than U.S. airlines generally do: Air Canada, Air France, Asiana, KLM and Korean Air all have generous allowances, and a carrier on THAI can be positively palatial. Some of the weight allowances are severe, however: Air France, Asiana, and Turkish Airlines in particular will have you searching for the lightest carrier made.
I was also enchanted to learn that neither Emirates nor Etihad will allow dogs to travel in-cabin, but they welcome in-cabin falcons.
