Another reason for me to NOT fly Jet Blue. I can't picture myself sitting next to Marmaduke, Snoopy or Garfield on the five-hour flight to Aruba.

The combined weight of the pet and carrier may not exceed 20 pounds.
My boys only miss that limit by 50lbs, each.

We had two folks with service dogs during our seating at dinner on our recent cruise.

Many more people with special needs are using service dogs nowadays. These were small dogs, not typical German Shephards or Labradors. The small service dogs were distinguished by their red jackets. :)

Certainly, a service dog is more than a pet! :)

Well trained and well mannered, I would expect....perhaps more so than many human customers.

Nothing better than sitting next to a pet to get the old allergies to start up.

Yeah, I always wondered how they could justify it to people with allergies in that when there is a person on board a plane who is allergic to peanuts the airline will not serve peanuts to anyone.

Airlines don't want to have any ADA compliance issues.

Hi people,
Not to start another thread,
Nice to see JetBlue shipping Pets as cargo world wide.But they don't have flights from Philadelphia,right?
I want to buy a Dog from a kennel Located in South Eastern Pennsylvania -1 hour west of Philadelphia.
I have searched and did found that Us Air,AA,Delta and United have flights from PHily,only US Air to have a direct flight.
They did contacted Continental,but they where told that they don't have planes that fly cargo to Aruba :(
So did anyone had their pets shipped over with one of these airlines,especially from Phily to Aruba?

Thank you so much for your help,

Be careful if that kennel is in Lancaster county PA, it's one of the worst areas for "puppy mills" in the world. If you have problems, let me know when you're getting the pup. I live about two hours from Philly and I might be able to help you out.

Hi there... I brought my 60lb dog on American, he went with baggage (I believe Continental will ship them too, maybe the word "cargo" threw them off, you may want to call them and ask about a dog specifically). American had the least restrictions; recent shots and an authorization to travel outside the us from a vet (vets are familiar with these) dated within 30 days of the travel. He had to be able to stand and turn around in his kennel and I had to provide instructions for food/water (I suppose in case the flight was grounded for many hours). I was not allowed to sedate him (although my vet gave me sedatives and I did). I was terrified for him to do the flight and it actually was much easier than I imagined. Aruban customs did not ask me for anything, no forms, nothing, they just gave me my dog when I landed (I can't promise that's the norm). I paid American $150 (similiar to an oversized extra bag charge) and they were pretty accomodating. I did get different stories from all the airlines every time I called, so I would recommend calling a few times just to make sure all your papers are in order. The only other possible issue (although I can't imagine it happening) was that only 3 dogs were allowed in cargo per flight and I could not reserve a spot for him, so had I shown up and there were already 3 dogs on the flight I would have been SOL.
I believe Continental had a dog specific customer service area, but I may be thinking of another airline.
Good luck and if you love dogs, be prepared to adopt a few here, I've already taken 3 more from the streets.

They want to charge me around $1600+ to ship the dog for me to Aruba and charge me $3500+ for a dog that it's color is not in the breed standard.
So I think that pup is out of the question. :(
