At Atlas, the only dogs we carry are gov't working dogs. We also take a LOT of animals...all as cargo.
Never heard of a JS w/ a pet. I would call my Operations, and I'm guessing they would say no.

Thanks, that's comforting info. I flew for CX 15 or so years ago. I remember having live animals on board in the belly and paid close attention to the temps down there. One of my worst fear is the crew neglecting it. I have 2 pets. One is 10 pounds she can go in the cabin, (Asiana and Korean both allow). But the boy is just a tad heavy at 17lbs...still might be possible but we might have to go the long way via Europe for him to ride in the cabin. The European carriers are much more liberal about this than the Asian ones.

Claim it as your emotional support animal. K4 hasn’t stated any restrictions as to emotional support animals yet. Sooooo, if there is no rule against it then it must be ok! Welcome aboard.

What's the difference legality wise between whether you JS with a pet or a paying passenger with a pet?

Not talking about anything else besides the legal aspect. Feel free to troll some more if that's your thing. (not you HogCapt)

Certainly don't use United they have a great history of killing dogs or sending them to the wrong side of the planet!!

The back side of the Crew Members Declaration says....the Captain of the vessel is responsible....that might be one reason why. I know I have been in the special, you pi$$ed us off room in MIA customs because of certain items brought in by my coworkers. Nothing illegal just undeclared..but I had to answer a lot of questions about items I did not even know were on board.

My dachshund has made 5 round trips to and from Japan the U.S in the cargo compartment with no problem. But when he got to SFO he really needed to find a bush.
