Medium sized dog, commercial flight across the US?
Save

Does anyone have any experience or advice to offer on flying across the US (west coast to east coast, doesn’t hugely matter where) with a medium sized dog too big to go into a carrier under the seat. I gather there are some internal flight providers within the US that allow larger dogs to sit on the floor, if you pay for an extra seat. Any tips or recommendations very welcome!

United and JetBlue let you buy a second seat but your dog has tp stay in its basket

#1 No, as far as I can see those are the rules for travelling with two (small) pets - you need to buy a seat for the carrier for the second one.

I'm interested in whether anyone has travelled with a medium sized (or larger) dog in-cabin, by buying a second seat. I believe JSX offer this?

It literally took less than 5 seconds to type 'JSX pets ' into a search engine.

#3, Yes, and I have already read that. I have asked, twice now, if anyone had any actual experience or advice to offer.
