Airline Pet Carrier Under Seat Southwest American Jetblue Airport In a Purse #Insten
We are flying JetBlue (not sure which plane) in January and have to purchase a pet carrier for our mini aussie. Did you use the sturdibag that was 18x12x12 or the 18x10x10? Our dog is about 10 pounds, tall and thin. Do they actually look to see if he can walk around inside? We are also considering Kobipet bags, but it looks like the Sturdibag can squish easier to fit underneath the seat. Are the seats that have extra leg room available on all JetBlue flights? We may have to consider that. Thank you.
Part of the traveling family “We have a lot of guests travel with pets and when they arrive at the airport you can tell they are pet-travel pros as they are well equipped with the carriers and pet travel accessories,” said Abby Lunardini, JetBlue's director of corporate communications. “Los Angeles to New York is a very popular pet route. At this stage we are exploring our options regarding introducing a formal pet program.”
Is jetblue really strict on the size of the pet carrier?

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.All airlines require pets to stay in their carrier and under the seat during take off and landing, so it’s important that your carrier can stay under the seat (as much as it can). In my personal experience, Virgin America and JetBlue are fine with you holding the carrier in your lap while in flight.Big points go to JetBlue; this airline doesn’t just tolerate pets of a certain size, they roll out the perks, making travel a much more enjoyable experience for pet owners. JetBlue has been flying pets since 2000, and they offer a host of travel accessories, services and pet travel guides to assist their travelers. JetBlue flies pets in the cabin but not as cargo, so owners of small dogs and cats are their primary pet customers. The combined weight of the pet and the carrier cannot exceed 20 pounds.Jet Blue JetPaws The Official Pet Carrier of JetBlue Airlines * To view further for this item, visit the image link.(This is an Amazon affiliate link and I receive a commission for the sales)
