jet blue

i am flying long beach to oakland next week and wondered if on such a short flight i will be able to take coco onboard and put her under the seat? if so, can i take her out of her carrier and hold her? is that a dumb question? if so will she have to wear a muzzle? she is such a good girl and i want to take her with me. judith

I haven't the faintest idea, but I'm sure the airline will ! Is there a number you can call to ask? I'd assume diff. airlines might have diff. rules.

I don't know if Jet Blue allows dogs in the cabin, but I can tell you that pulling the dog out of the bag on the flight totally depends on the people around you and the flight attendant. Remember that not everyone likes dogs. Some people are deathly afraid of dogs, even small fluffy ones. (I had one flight attendant growl at me to put her away on a redeye flight at 2am when I had the whole row to myself and pulled Tinky out.)

I'm going through this right now..ugh..it's such a nightmare!

First you have to find out whether or not the airline you're flying on accepts pets. Then, if they do, they usually charge a fee. Delta is the least expensive...50 dollars each way.

THEN..once you get your tickets, you have to call and reserve a spot for your dog under the seat cause they have cabin restrictions. Delta only allows 2 per coach, and 1 per first class.

Finally, you have to get a copy of your health records from the vet and a physical has to be done on the dog no more than 10 days before your trip. This is what's irritating me the most cause I just had capote's checkup last week and I'm going to have to get ANOTHER 70 dollar physical so he can board a plane.

Here's the info for pets on different carriers. Hopefully this helps!

Also, there's an embargo for checking your pets in the summer months..it's from may 15th thru december something..so if you're going to check her, you're going to have to leave her home.

JET BLUE DOES ALLOW DOG IN CABIN. THE FEE IS 50 DOLLARS ONE WAY. IT DEPENDS ON THE PASSENGERS AROUND YOU IF YOU ARE GOING TO KEEP HIM ON YOUR LAP. I FLEW FROM BUFFALO TO N.Y.C WITH MY HAV ON MY LAP WITH NO PROBLEMS ON JET BLUE.

I havent flown with Dora yet but I have with the maltese. The first flight the steward wanted me to get her out. I had her out the entire time! The return flight, I got her out and I was completely yelled at!

Make sure to reserve your seat for the dog in advance cause I called our travel dept for the week of nationals and one flight was over pet limit already!

Well, Kimberly, Tinky does look terribly mean and ferocious.(I say, with tongue firmly in cheek!) She might suddenly morph into Cujo and take out everyone on the plane.....:-) Good grief. It's hard to beleive anyone would be terrified of Tinky. Our neighbor's daughter was terrified of another neighbor's four pound Chihuahua. Funny thing, that girl's family eventually brought home a pit bull mix that barks at everyone and I overheard her brother saying the dog had recently bitten a vet and a vet tech. Go figure!

Agree with Kimberly - One flight I brought Austin out and everyone was amazing - the other flight I had an empty seat next to mine - put the sherpa on the seat just to reach my hand in to comfort him and one attendant told me ...UNDER THE SEAT...

Susan, I'm always amazed how many small children are afraid of dogs. Sometimes it is from a bad experience, but I think the most common reason is just because they haven't been around them. Since I work part-time at a school, I get to take them with me to see kids often, but I always take them contained somehow to keep anyone from getting scared. Even a lot of scared kids will approach us strictly out of curiosity, especially the puppies since they are so small. Now that the puppies have teeth and are mouthing everything, they won't go to the school at all. That bothers a lot of kids who have dogs at home and the puppies don't know better yet.

The neighbor's daughter was about 13 years old or so when I noticed her fear. It just seems so odd to me that a family with a daughter desperately afraid of a Chihuahua would get a Pit Bull. I guess it worked though. She's not afraid of dogs anymore.
