Things are looking up for animal owners looking to fly with their pets. It was just announced that Southwest Airlines is going to allow pets in the cabin for a $75 added “pet charge.” And now there is also PetAirways.
PetAirways is launching on July 14th and will be serving five major cities – Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, New York and Washington D.C. PetAirways does not put your beloved animal in cargo anymore, instead they get their own secured crate in coach. Some amenities of the airline include, long walks or relaxing in the pet lounge before departure. And for those long flights, PetAirways makes stops and removes the pawsengers so they can take a bathroom break. There is an attendant on duty at all times and a trained veterinarian technician to monitor the pets. Fares will generally run $250.00 per pet, one way, unfortunately that does not include your ticket, as owners cannot fly with their pets, they must take their own flights.
What do you think? Will this idea work? Or would you be more inclined to go with Southwest? As dog-lovers, we want to hear from you!
