I know we all love our pets, but there are some people who are allergic to pets, and there are people that are afraid or do not like dogs. I think that the airlines that have adopted the policy of allowing pets on flights, should have 'pet friendly' flights and 'no pet' flights, the way the hotel industry treats this area. There are a lot of issues connected to this policy to be considered and I think it has to be explored a little more in depth. Recently a friend of mine was on a flight where a couple had 2 big dogs, too big to fit in a carriers, she was wondering if they had to buy seats for them???? There has to be some guidelines set and followed. I personally, love dogs, and have always had one, but between hair, drool, and barking, I would not expect everyone else to be thrilled having a dog next to them, as it is we are squished in like cattle. I can barely get my small carryon under the seat, I don't know how you would get a dog carrier under there.
