The Top 26 Pet-Friendly Airlines

If you’re a pet-owner like me, the thought of leaving your beloved friend at home while you’re far away in a distant land is hard enough.  I’m hoping that I’ll be able to bring my dog, Saki, with me on some of my trips.

 

I’ve thus been doing some research on traveling with pets, and found that these 27 airlines (international and U.S. domestic) all allow pets to fly in-cabin with you. Find the list below (shown in alphabetical order), along with some of their policies.
