Are there any times during the year that Delta will fly my boxer (snub nosed dog)?
Will they fly him in cabin as a service dog?
Have you heard good things about Bill Rosenthal from pet air limo? He flys a cessna and will fly dogs in cabin.

Any airline will fly your service dog in the cabin with proper documentation, book the bulkhead seat in so your service dog can lay at your feet.

Billy Rosenthal cannot be trusted. I learned that from experience.
