Question by Jesus: How picky are airlines about the size of pet carriers for traveling with pets in cabin?
We’ll be traveling internationally with Continental and Lufthansa. Both airlines have different size requirements. Lufthansa is 21.6 x 15.7 x 7.9 inches. Continental is 18 x 11 x 11 inches. Are they going to get out tape measures at the ticket counter? If we’re an inch or two over will it be OK? It’s impossible to to find pet carriers that are exactly the dimensions required. All tips about flying with pets would be greatly appreciated.
Answer by Nekkid Truth!
the carriers have to fit those dimensions, because the carrier must be able to fit under the seat!
Ive heard of people getting away with squishing a soft carrier under the seat, but if its a hard carrier, you will definantly have to check your pet in as luggage.
Find a carrier that fits those dimensions to be safe.
