For your pets safety, we do not accept any animals in cargo compartments on US Airways or US Airways Shuttle flights.
IN CABIN TRAVEL: FLY WITH A SMALL DOG OR CAT Etihad Airways does not allow dogs, cats or other animals to travel in the cabin of the aircraft.
CARGO TRAVEL: FLY WITH A LARGER DOG OR CAT OR OTHER ANIMAL If your pet is a service animal, Etihad Airways may transport your pet in the cabin or as checked baggage in the cargo section of the aircraft serving the Dubai to US to Dubai route only according to its regulations. All other animals will travel as manifest cargo through ANA or NAS Airline Services. This section of the cargo department has the same temperature and pressure as the passenger cabin. TIP: Be sure to tell the Captain of the aircraft that your pet is flying in the cargo hold so that they can be sure to keep the temperature at the proper level. Find more tips on . Etihad does not offer accompanied checked baggage service for live animals other than service animals.
Customs and Border Protection News for Pets Entering the U.S. as Cargo If a pet owner ships a pet to the U.S. as cargo using a pet shipper, and the pet owner plans on having the pet collected by a professional shipper, the pet owner should download . After completing the appropriate sections of this form, the owner should fax or scan this information along with a copy of the airway bill, the health certificate papers and a copy of the owners driver's license or passport to the pet shipper. The shipper can deliver this form and accompanying papers to the Custom's office at the airport prior to the pet's arrival. In essence, this will mean that the owner is authorizing clearance—not the shipper. This avoids the need to hire a customs broker. A friend or family member may collect and clear the pet without this form because they are not being paid for this service.

What's the us airways pet policy
When you want to transport your pet, you can rest assured that we will take the very best care of them. Pets must be booked to travel with British Airways World Cargo, and they will be carried in the aircraft hold. Pets in the passenger cabin are permitted based on availability. You cannot book a pet travel online so you should call US Airways Reservation to book your pet travel. Also, when traveling with your pet, you must check-in with an agent at the airport. When you travel with Emotional Support Animals, the following airlines have indicated that they will honor the proper documentation on a case by case basis: Domestic - Air Tran Airways, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest, Spirit Airlines, United, US Airways, and Virgin America. You will need to contact the airline and confirm that they will allow your pet on your route. Always remember, however, that there are countries that mandate that your pet arrive as air cargo including Emotional Support and Service animals. You cannot make a reservation for your pet on the flight when traveling in the cabin. You must show up at the gate early enough to get one of the slots available for pets on your flight. If all of the slots are full, then your ticket can be cancelled and a credit will be issued for a future flight.
US Airways has announced that they will allow passengers traveling with pets in the cabin to purchase an additional seat if one passenger is traveling with 2 pets. The additional pet must still be stowed under the seat in front of the seat purchased, and all rules for carry-ons still apply.
