International flight

Hi all!
Wanted to ask if anyone has experience with flying international with their Hav?
We may need to relocate from the UK to the US (not sure if it will happen yet). I have researched that some airlines allow dogs as cargo, but I feel worried that my little Hav would be so distraught travelling this way as its a 9hour flight!?
Any thoughts, or experiences would be so helpful! Many thanks Issyx

I know Lufthansa allows dogs in cabin. Not sure if they have flights through the UK, though. I know because the last time I was on a Lufthansa flight, there was an announcement for everyone to be on the look-out for a small dog who had escaped his carrier. He was re-corraled before he got to my seat though!

I think you can take a pet in cabin on United. They operate several non-stops to and from the UK including out of Midlands and Manchester. I would call and ask though. United has a good reputation with pets.

The only international flight experience I have with Vino (9wks at the time) is when I pick him up from the breeder. Flew from Dulles Airport to Canada. I flew United and he flew in the cabin with me. Vino was so quiet people didn't even know I had a puppy until I pulled him out of the carrier to go thru TSA screening and I pulled him out one time while in flight. I pulled him out to give him a sip of water, he took a few sips and went back sleep. He sleep most of the way and I didn't give him any sedative.

Before the flight I was paranoid about having Vino's papers and about size of carrier but no one check the size (carrier fit perfectly under the seat) as for the papers I only showed it at the ticket counter with the pet confirmation number.

I would look for one that allows pups in a cabin even if they must remain crated. I would not fly with mine under the plane This probably isn't a popular thing to say - but can you also have some sedation of some form for him? That's a long flight!

Hope you're coming to the US for good reasons. Good luck!

Thank you all so much for your comments! I feel that travelling in cabin would be the only option really. I would feel very uncomfortable with her travelling in cargo and I would be concerned about the state she would be in! I just need to find an airline willing to let me!! I know United allow you to travel domestically, but there is a weight and crate size restriction. The other option is coming by cruise but this would take a week! Thanks again I will continue researching x

The very best taste in broth comes from using a beef with the cuboid remaining in. This is real for Cheap WOW Gold, poultry, poultry or whatever beef you use. With vacation Diablo 3 Gold, we often have a ham cuboid remaining. If some beef is remaining on the cuboid, it can be the program of a most wonderful and amazing broth. Even if there is no ham cuboid remaining, just a few sections of beef is enough. Another choice is to get some used ham hocks to add in that amazing taste. Long, gradually planning allows the cuboid to launch all its Diablo 3 Gold, and the ham continues to be fall off the cuboid.
