I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to, but the policy and what/if pets are allowed on international flights is mainly determined by the country you are flying to. If you are flying to a country that doesn't allow a certain pet, it doesn't matter what airline your fly, you won't be able to take that pet.

 

Hope this helps.

Sorry, but you won't be able to take your pet on an nternational flight with Southwest. From the Southwest website:
