Sharon Dayton, OH 7/19/2010 9:07:20 PM My dog is six pounds but 12 inches tall, too big for the passenger cabin of the plan because she can't be any taller than 8". So that item about being under 15 pounds doesn't wash with what I've been told. Also, you don't mention that the airline can't guarantee you will get on the plane with your dog until the last minute and if it doesn't make the cut for some reason, you are stuck with paying for the trip and/or changing the flight plans. And if you don't have dog food with you that will last until you can actually get on a flight, your are sunk. Oh, and good luck finding a through flight from and to wherever you are traveling. I couldn't find one.
