What we're wondering is if Hank couldn't maybe be the new poster boy for behavior befitting airline passengers, what with the number of flight diversions due to unruly drunks and psychopaths taking to the not-so-friendly skies these days. American Airlines normally charges a $125 fee each way per , and the combined weight of both the pet and the carrier are not to exceed 20 pounds, so it's unclear how Ms. Whitman managed to get them to accommodate her and Hank. Refreshingly, nobody took issue with the arrangement, though, which is kind of unusual in the age of me, me, me. American has also begun offering pet cabins available on select flights between New York's JFK and LAX, and JFK to San Francisco (SFO). There are two cabins per plane in the first section only on these flights, so if you're interested you'll probably need to book early. The Sherpa American Airlines Duffle Pet Carrier measures 17 x 11 x 10.5 inches and is suited for pets up to 16 lbs.

Flying with your pet is about to get somewhat less stressful: American Airlines has just announced the creation of pet cabins, where pet owners may easily secure a carrier, with a pup or cat inside, for a more comfortable transcontinental flight.Most airlines allow you to take your pet with you. The policies differ, which is why you must know the pet carrier guidelines for American Airlines BEFORE you book a flight!Some airlines allow small pets in the cabin of the plane, if they're in a carry-on kennel or approved carrier that fits under a passenger seat; standard carry-on baggage restrictions must be followed. Usually, these flights need to be less than six hours. Animals other than dogs or cats may not be allowed--airlines have very specific regulations--and odor or noise disturbance can get a pet and passenger removed from the plane before take-off. Pets must remain in their carrying case for the duration of the flight. Most airlines allow one pet per passenger and two pets per cabin, though American Airlines allows two per passenger and seven per flight, so again, be sure to check individual rules. The maximum size for cabin pet carriers on American Airlines is 19 inches long by 13 inches wide and 9 inches high. Soft-sided pet carriers made of water-repellent, padded nylon with mesh ventilation on two or more sides may exceed size limits slightly because they are collapsible, but animals must still be able to stand up, turn around and lie down naturally. Pet kennels are counted as a passenger's carry-on bag or personal item, and a cabin pet charge is added the cost of the plane ticket.We have compiled a list of the specific guidelines for American Airlines below.
