Re: Pet fee - why?

Pet fee.....there shouldn't even be animals on the plane. I don't want anyone's animals in the same area that I paid more than your pet fee to ride in. Why should everyone else have to put up with the smell, alergy, noise. We recently had to put up with a howling little mutt off and on for a five hour flight. You shouldn't have the right to trample on others travel time just because you can't be without you animal.

We are talking about dogs not snakes.Will you be sitting under the seat in front of you? I mean I dont think you paid to sit under the seat. When I brought my dog no one ever knew he was on the plane. He doesnt smell and he was as quiet as a mouse! People bring their pets for different reasons.  Howling mutt..pulease you get the same nosie with crying babies! Id rather hear a dog than a wailing baby!

Barbtim, I hear where you're coming from (I feel the same way about screaming babies and toddlers), but your reply is inappropriate for this thread... we are questioning SWA's pet fee imposed on its passengers. Its repredentative suggests there are other "considerations" that validate the fee, but it doesn't explain what those are. It's possible that SWA charges its $95 per way fee simply because "it can" and we are questioning that regulation. Start your own thread regarding SWA's allowing dogs/cats on board. My opinion.
