My sister is flying in from San Fransisco,CA tonight for Christmas. She just found out that she cannot bring her dog ( a male 10 month old Chiauhauha X Dauchsund) with her (he goes everywhere with her). She has flown down here numerous times with him, but this time the ticket that he was on with her...something happened with the credit card and now if she wants to bring him on the same flight she has to pay over 700 dollars. She wants to find an airline that will fly him out, hopefully today, or as soon as possible. The flight would be from San Fransisco, CA, to El Paso, TX. Please, any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!! We need as much info as possible! Whats a Christmas without your baby with you??
If the dog can not fly on board with her, then she needs to find a boarding facility or stay home. Sorry, do you know how many packages and luggage is lost this time of year? I ship dogs all over the world, but will never ship during holiday peak periods. Just too big of risk.
And FYI no airline charges $700 to even fly a giant dog domestically.Fees are based either on weight or cubic inches. It runs between $80-$100 for a dog of that size. The problem is that they only allow two dogs in cabin on any given flight. It's the same price on an accompanied flight even as cargo, but then that is limited to space available. Her best bet would be to start checking with other airlines to see if there are any flights available for both her and the dog(in cabin).
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
"...something happened with the credit card...."? Suffice it to say, I'm not going to lecture. I would not leave my Bichon in a kennel and if she's like me she doesn't see that as a viable option either. I'd inquire about a flight time change ( at very nominal fee. ie., Delta charges approx $50) Never, ever, transport a pet in cargo. Never, ever. I don't think it's humane.
How sad,but maybe a little misinformed? You can EITHER fly your dog in the cabin with you,or as baggage! I do this ALL of the time and never have problems unless in Europe and their Customs offices,but in the USA you can do either. On another note if you EVER need to fly and not worry abput the Airlines that have Climate Cutailments then fly Continental, they have none,as ALL of their flights are climate controlled below. And they are NO MORE expensive than any other airline.
