HI, I live in NYC and I ma moving to Europe soon. I want to take my dog with me. Do you know which is the best airline to flight him with? Any tips or suggestions? Thank you! I really appreciate any help
I don't know if Continental goes overseas, but they are hands down the best way to ship a pet. They have a special cargo division just for animals, and they are climate controlled, pressurized ,actually the same as the cabins. The Captains are always informed as to what breed, species, how many, ages etc..They are the best for communicating if there's anything out of the norm for the flight. Check with them..Continental Pet safe program.
I have flown several puppies with delta. It has been a great experiance, and all my dog have been happy and healthy. I would suggest talking to Europe and see what there rules and regulations are. good luck
Smudge had a hellacious time with continental even with their quick pac pet program. Was lost, connecting flight got canceled and they tried to stick me with a three day 600 dollar boarding bill for their screw up.. His breeder fought them to return him to NC from being stuck in NJ.. While likely not the norm, can't say continental handled it well, and I won't give them business again.
I'd be more concerned with the import laws than the airline company to europe though. If you don't follow the guidelines to a T you will get mandatory quarantine. If the microchip doesn't scan properly it's even a mandatory quarantine stay at your expense I think.

Talked to a Beagle breeder the other day, pretty sure it was Continental she spoke of having issues with as well. LOST her dog. She had to get nasty before they even took finding him seriously. Wasn't until she threatened a lawsuit before they suddenly cared. Then when they finally found the dog THEY lost....they handed her a bill for over $300 for the time and recovery of finding the dog!
