[8/15/11 I’m thrilled to report that this post, and its two companion posts, are now out of date. I’ve just learned that Alaska Airlines isnow allowing small dogs and cats to travel in-cabin to Hawaii, as of today’s date.]
A few days ago I wrote a post about flying with an in-cabin dog to Hawaii — nearly impossible, I said, but I had found a couple of airlines that would allow it. Alas, one of those airlines, WestJet, has just written to me saying that the information their customer service representative gave me was incorrect. In fact, WestJet does not allow pets to travel in-cabin or as checked baggage to Hawaii.
The correct information is provided on WestJet’s web site, but finding pet info on airline sites is tricky, and I never found WestJet’s. I’m so sorry, travelers.
Now, of course, I’m worried that the Korean Air representative I spoke to also gave me the wrong information, so I’ve asked again, this time by e-mail, and I’ll let you know what I learn. Korean Air’s pet policy says nothing about traveling to Hawaii, so I remain hopeful.
