Hooray Southwest Airlines!! First of all, to those who mention allergy concerns...most pets flying are better groomed than most of your children (and I DO have children, so not opposed to those either!) And I know they're probably much better behaved. Our pets will most often travel so quietly that you'll never know they are there, and they don't kick the back of your chair or whine every few minutes about "getting there" or "what they want...". They are concealed in very nice carriers that are not going to allow the dander or hair to affect you, and I doubt that you who complain of the potential problems have given a thought to your over perfumed person, or the extra room you take with the few extra pounds you're carrying lately. Southwest Airlines has always offered the utmost in service and professionalism, and if an unusual problem presented itself with a pet on board I have the confidence they will resolve the unusual problem. Remember, a dislike for animals really doesn't constitute an "allergy", so keep this in mind! And, for the record I am allergic to WHINING, so please keep that to yourself and let everyone's trip be an enjoyable experience. Maybe, just maybe, something you're doing, wearing, exposing others to, etc. 'may' be undesirable too. Some people only have their pets, and if you've see the positive results pets have done in rehabilitating the elderly, ill, depressed, etc., you'd realize this is a GOOD thing!
Be thankful for all that is good on the flight and in your health and well being allows you to be traveling....things could be WORSE! God Bless!
