@nancyss hi Nancy, thank you for your replay. I am waiting cabin care my puppy next to me from turkish airlines. this is so important I do not want let her to under airplane 😉 I will keep you update. thank you for your interesting.

OK. I must have missed something. From the pic I thought you were getting that cute little boy. Have you opted for a girl? (Sorry if I'm being dense).

I wouldn't ship a pup in cargo but certainly many have been. We got our first dog that way.

I saw a list of airlines and pet deaths a while back. Some have a much better record than others. I believe that by any measure -- sheer numbers or per mile -- United was at the bottom of the "bad" list.

@donc

Mostly because United allows brachiocephalic breeds (ie short muzzles), which others don't. That accounted for most of the deaths. But, knowing how much more dangerous it was, why did they?

"Between June 2005 and June 2011, 189 animals died in flight, and 98 of those were brachycephalic, according to the Times, which led to some airline bans."

Is the bad press likely to push United to be safer? Maybe, but I'd avoid them.

@debradownsouth I wasn't trying to be condescending and I am sorry you took it that way.

No one on earth knows that "tone" is nearly impossible to read than me. I am sorry I read yours wrong.

As for discussing between yourselves... its a message board. Unless you go to private messaging, people assume it open for discussion. 🙂

It still pertains with British Airlines - and flights out of London, Debra. I had to check up in the last 6 months. And they are still very fussy about the size of the crate and the space for movement, standing, lying, turning.

But if Turkish airlines allow Pet in Cabin - so much the better for Caner and the puppy !

😞 That's hard. I wonder what their reasoning is? I looked and at least they allow certified assistance dogs on all flights. El Al does not allow any dog over the weight limit, period. Honestly, the most stressful part of moving to Israel was the paperwork and timing of requirements for the dogs.

We're able to carry a recognised assistance dog free of charge in the cabin of all our flights.<<

@debradownsouth Your opinions were valuable...all is well.

@caner Wow...those are a lot of restrictions, so have you gotten everything all planned out yet? I know all the effort will be worth it when you see your new Basenji family member! XOXOXO

@donc Hi,
