    I’m not much help but I can tell you that normally when dogs fly they must go through customs and you would not see them for a few days. however, i can tell you it would not sit under your seat the would put it in cargo but like another person said there are all pet airplanes. But thats a stupid idea you will only be wasting money for that.

    You can always ave your dog fly with a special plane just for pets. They provide specel grates, gormey food, i think a vet, and just overall take ALOT better care of your dogs. Im pretty sure thay have specialy trained workers to. But it costs alot more.

    If your dog is flying as checked baggage, she will be in the cargo area, which will be closed at departure and there is no way to check her once she is loaded and the cargo doors are closed. Check with the airline about specific crate requirements, but typically it is 19" long x 13" wide x 9" high and the dog must be able to stand, lie down, and turn around comfortably in order to ride in the cabin.

    1. You know airlines DO provide this info over the phone and on their sites right? 18" L x 11" W x 11" H Is the general measurement required for a soft sided carrier. This can vary to some degree from airline to airline. Example this is jetblue’s requirement compared to the one I gave you from Continental 17"L x 12.5"W x 8.5"H
    2. Nope.

    my dogs carrier measures 17 x 11 x 10.5 inches … it has fit under the seat on various airlines … my dog is 14 pounds … it is not possible to hire anyone to check on the dog … but you really have nothing to worry about … cargo is pressurized and climate controlled just like where you will be riding …
