After over 40 yrs in the pet shipping
business, I have NOT found a non-pet
friendly airline. Sometimes non-friendly persons working for the airlines! Some pet shippers refer to
pet friendly airlines as they get kick-
backs for recommending some airlines.
With nearly 15,000 pets flying every
month domestically, there are certainly
VERY few incidents......
Brachycephalic breeds present the biggest risk factor. Also, pre-existing
health issues. Also, poor kennel
construction and failure to use cable
