Standby Service Dog

New Arrival


So I can do standby flights because my father was employeed at Southwest Airlines, but I now have a service dog who is flight trained. I've flown with her before having a ticket, but is it possible to fly standby with a service dog? My concern is mostly that I usually preboard with her to try and get a space up front with more room for her to curl up, and airlines prefer that she preboard. However I know that standby tickets are sometimes gotten last minute, and that you're supposed to be in boarding group C. Has anyone else encountered this or do you know the policies?
