Dogs in Cabin

Dear Pet lovers,

I am wondering if anyone has experience flying dogs in the cabin of the plane. Most EU airlines state that 8kg limit dog+carrier. Does anyone know how lenient airlines actually are? Specifically Finnair? I fly back and forth to finland a lot and would like to start taking my 7.2kg Jack Russel with me perferably in cabin. I have found a 1.5kg approved bag and am wondering if they would be so strict to not allow him?

I have to fly from Zurich so it would be a shame to arrive there and they turn him down for being so close but if they say no I have no choice but to miss the flight.

I know no one can really say for sure but any shared experiences would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Coralee

Coralee

Re: Dogs in Cabin

As you mentioned, Finnair have an 8kg limit, including carrier.

The problem is that even if others got away with a bit more, you are reliant on a particular set of people on a particular day waiving the rules.

You'd be better off talking to the airline directly and getting a proper approval or refusal.
