Which seat works best with an in-cabin dog? [Delta Embraer 145]

I’ve been posting the under-seat measurements of planes we’ve been traveling on, and I invited readers to add measurements if they found themselves on a plane with a tape measure and a willingness to fold themselves into a pretzel. Lovely reader Jen stepped up to the plate and sent me the following message about her recent trip on a Delta ERJ-145:

“Hello there. I thought I would share some measurements I took on a flight this week. It was a Delta Embraer 145. It is a regional jet, so one class only. My seat was 16b (on the aisle). 11hx17dx17w. Note, the window seat is significantly smaller in width measurement as the airplane wall curves inward.”

Thanks so much, Jen! I’ve added this to Dog Jaunt’s ongoing series recording under-seat plane measurements. Keep in mind that most domestic and international airlines have rules about the maximum size of in-cabin pet carriers they allow on board (see Dog Jaunt’s handy charts under the “Taking your pet on a plane” tab above).
