Re: Cat flying Lufthansa from Japan

ANA’s English web-page says pets are not accepted in the cabin for International flights, but I can’t find anything about domestic flights. The Japanese pages may be more detailed. https://www.ana.co.jp/en/us/travel-i...on/pet-policy/

Osaka is much closer than Narita, but is likely to have fewer flights.

Thanks for the advice everyone.
I just posed the fun question to my wife “how do we get Wally from Hiroshima to Tokyo and where will he stay?” as Japan is not nearly as pet friendly as other places. I want to avoid using a pet shipper as much as possible, but we may have to. At least for Japan.
I honestly don’t see this is difficult. A domestic flight is not long. Animals survive flying in the hold area. Many years ago my puppy of 3.5 months weighing 400g flew from Tokyo to Singapore in the hold and he came out as a very happy pup.

If your wife really doesn’t want that, well then she’ll have to take it on the Shinkansen. Japan is indeed not pet friendly when it comes to accommodation but there are. Plus Haneda airport has a pet hotel.

Where there is a will, there is a way.

Japan doesn't allow them to fly (currently) nor does the Shinkansen allow pets. My wife is not the problem here.

We (used to) travel frequently - but normally not with the cat. Unfortunately Japan has used both the Olympics and COVID to implement many restrictions - many aimed at baggage and luggage... and much to support the domestic shipping and delivery companies.

Normally they do as I’ve done it both on domestic flight and Shinkansen. With a quick look, I don’t see restrictions? (Ok I must admit I haven’t checked through all the details but I couldn’t imagine they would not allow ANY pet that fits in a small carrier at all at the moment?)
I would double check the Shinkansen if I were you as normally it is allowed for a pet the size of your cat.

Edit: I looked through the Shinkansen website. I don’t see restrictions and cats are totally allowed (must keep in the carrier) Ticket is very cheap too

Re: Cat flying Lufthansa from Japan

Airlines may allow a cat in the cabin, but some countries do not, so check first. We bought our cat back from South Africa and had to put him in the hold as the authorities would not allow him in the cabin. We flew Swiss and he was well looked after though it took a couple of hours to clear him at Zurich.
