Reader’s report: Zurich to JFK, on SWISS, with an in-cabin dog

My heartfelt thanks to reader Anja, who gathered in one relatively short e-mail a wealth of useful information about her recent SWISS (formerly Swiss Air) flight from Zurich to New York’s JFK airport with Dr. Pepper, her Poodle — including real-life info about traveling via SWISS, under seat space on a SWISS Airbus A330-300, and the location and condition of JFK’s outdoor pet relief area at Terminal 4.Read the rest

Which seat works best with an in-cabin dog? [United 737-800/900]

Pet carrier picture: Large SturdiBag on Virgin America A320

I’ve reported before about the dimensions of the under-seat space available (in the main cabin) on a Virgin America A-320, but I neglected to take a picture of Chloe’s carrier in position. This time, I got the shot. Please note that I was sitting in Seat 14C, an aisle seat in the main cabin (here’s a floor map of a VA A320 for your reference):

When I started writing this blog, I always oriented Chloe’s carrier left-to-right — it sticks out less that way, but requires a wider under-seat space to fit.… Read the rest
