oh man how scary!! and the reason I do not fly dogs in the summer unless they have climate control. delta and Continental are the only ones with climate control. AA should have never flew with the dogs that hot!! How horrible!
I told myself I would only fly with a dog,if I could get it certified in therapy,so it could come with me.
I use to work in an airport. I wont EVER stick my dogs in those planes.
Not to mention how they load them onto the plane 1/2 the time.
I fly dogs all the time and had never had and issue it is just sad when things go wrong. You cannot fly with a therapy dog, you can only fly with service dogs and they are two different things. Service dogs require special training, almost any dog can be a therapy dog.
