Mar 4, 2017 - Alternatively, while on JetBlue flying with pets, pup or kitty must be in a carrier no larger than 17" long x 12.5" wide x 8.5" high
If your best friend and his carrier are under the maximum weight limit (usually 20 pounds), and he can fit comfortably under the seat while in his carrier, he can fly with you in the cabin on Virgin America, JetBlue, United, Southwest, Delta, and US Airways. Here’s a of airlines that allow small pets in the cabin.
One of the best airlines for dog travel is JetBlue due to its JetPaws program. Each traveler can bring a dog as carry-on if its closed carrier fits under the seat, and members of the airline’s TrueBlue frequent flyer club will earn 300 points each time they fly with their pet. They will also be given a tag for their pet’s carrier and a list of pet travel tips. Dogs can be taken on both domestic and international flights if they weigh 20 pounds or less for a fee of $100 each way.

Airline Pet Policy JetBlue - Fly Your Dog or Cat Safely - Pet Travel
Very much an animal lover here but cannot compare an animal to a human emergency.(like in comment about handicapped son)..pleeze people... Anyway, I am highly allergic to cats. Like em but can't breathe around them normally. Had an incident on JetBlue on a red eye flight from west coast to east coast. I coughed and wheezed the whole time not knowing a lady behind me had her cat sitting on the "seat" in its cage rather than under the seat. Since it was a red eye flight, I didn't realize this until we landed. Could have been a very serious situation for me. I believe people with pets and in my case, especially cats, should be placed in just a certain area, away from people proned to allergies. Now each time I fly to the west coast I ask the JetBlue people as I am boarding, if someone has a cat and if I need to change seats, I do. It used to be that the only way a dog or cat could fly was in the belly of a plane. Times have changed, of course, and airlines like JetBlue now allow you to bring pets onboard, albeit with some caveats. Before you start thinking about how darling Bits will look posed on that tropical beach, make sure you’ve considered all the necessary procedures for flying with her.To get our May going, we took a look at this week.

Never have a dealt with such rude customer service of any airlines, especially in a time when the airlines are struggling so much to get customers. We have already alerted family and friends who have pets to not fly JetBlue. In addition, I will continue to tell my company who flies from San Diego to New York and Boston monthly to fly with another company. We did receive a refund, but minus the $100 change fee per ticket, but it cost us nearly an additional $800 in gas, over 49 hours of traveling, 2600 miles to the car, 2 missed interviews and missed job opportunities... all for 6 lbs!
