Best Seat for Pet Carrier?

Explorer C

Hi all!

I'm traveling next week with my pup for the first time and I'm wondering which seat will provide the best amount of space for his carrier? I was thinking it's probably the middle but if there's another option I'd love to know. Thanks in advance!

Not the first row

Window and Middle seats usually have wider space underneath the seat in front of you between their supports. Underneath the aisle seat is typically more narrow.

If it were me I would recommend the window seat that way no one will jostle the dog if they get up to use the restroom during the flight.

Safe travels
