Default Trouble!!!! This SUCKS!!

I am running into trouble with airlines, getting costs of upwards of 500, and they also want the cardholder present when the pup is loaded... Ummm? What how can I do that? If I could be there I would not need to ship!!

The one reasonable airline (who Talla was shipped with) is under time if year restrictions...

If I can't get this sorted my hubby will pull the plug, can't justify 800 plus to get her here :-(

I am devastated....

Laura, she's flying from where to where?

We used continental in July and August from Chicago to Vegas and new Mexico to Vegas. Both times the flight could not be prebooked you had to show up and hope there was room and both times we flew the cargo (dogs) early morning. Have you tried them?

I was told a lot of airlines are in fact climate controlled in the cargo unit but they're afraid I malfunctions, etc, so they just ban animals in summer/deep winter for liability.


Also both times it cost 250$.

Since she's a rescue there may be some other avenues.

Phoenix to Syracuse, medium size kennel (40 lbs for total weight)

The other issue is how in hell can the cardholder be present when the dog is dropped? The lady on the phone was adamant

We have to Pre book, otherwise it'd leave RD in an awful spot as she's flying out later herself...

I don't know where to start :-(

And I don't want to leave it last minute and cause problems for RD

The superstitious part of me feels like I jinxed it by saying something too soon :-(

Can you paypal the money to the person that's sending the pup off (RD?) and then they can pay for it from that? That way the cardholder is there but you paid the cardholder.

That's how I paid my breeder for shipping.

Well, you could send the funds to Grace and let her handle that end of it.

But let me send an e-mail and see if there's something.

Also, contact Pilots 'n' Paws! http://pilotsnpaws.org/
