Howdy All. Has anyone carried their small cat or dog in the aircraft cabin with them to Manila from the USA? If so what airlines did you fly on?

The last thing I want is to sit next to a noisy cat or dog for 28 hours. Leave your pet at home. Don't be selfish. Don't inflict pain on other people just because you can't bear to be separated from your kitty. Grow up.

I love dogs, have 4, and cats too but unless your pet can use the rest room how do you plan on doing a trip like that. Don't think your fellow passengers would be to pleased.

First my pets are part of my family. You don't leave your family just because there might be an inconvenience. Plus my pets are better behaved than most toddlers and children. Also due to airline policies of most carriers I will have to break my flight up into 3 legs. Max flight time for pets is 12 hrs.

Sorry lancelotlinc I'm very grown up. Based on your response maybe you should.

Old grape- I have always been hesitant to bring my dog to the RP , would love to but the gruelling flight is tough on them , plus the habitat for dogs and local dog diseases are scary too. Especially the various skin infections and mites.

Dog stealing of any value is common on Negros too, sadly.

-Old Grape- In two weeks my wife and I are flying with our shih tzu from Portland to Manila with a layover in Japan. Flying in cargo wasn't an option because most airlines will no longer fly snub nosed breads in cargo, Delta is the only airlines I could find that flies to Manila that doesn't have a weight restriction on pets in the cabin, the pet carrier just has to fit under the seat. The process to acquire an import permit has changed since we did it 20 years ago when I was in the Navy, you have to apply online @ https://www.intercommerce.com.ph, it's a terrible website and not very intuitive, I was able to get feedback from their tech support, I will be driving to Olympia to get the health certificate issued by our vet stamped by the USDA which is a requirement. We are flying on a 767-300 and have two seats by the window on the right side of the aircraft that have the most room under the seat. Don't listen to the numbskulls on this forum, do what you have to.

Oldgrape Good for you. How could anyone abandon their pets? They are heart felt animals that love you and rely on you and would defend you with their lives.

Goslig - I agree that pets are very important - strong love each way and they will defend you if possible -BUT pets SHOULD NOT be traveling in the plane cabin with passengers. Cargo, yes definitely. In the cabin it is often screaming kids or others running up the aisles that ALL passengers are expected to endure. Often the parents are just sitting ignoring the kids as they are watching a movie or asleep. Pets in the cargo hold.

We successfully brought our Shi Tzu to the Philippines 2 days ago per my previous post, we used a Sherpa deluxe carrier and it fit perfec under the seat of the Delta 767-300, she never made a sound the whole flight, the vet gave us some drugs to give her but I don’t think it was even necessary. There was a gate agent at Narita waiting for us to help us to the pet relief area and give us priority boarding, she didn’t want to relieve herself, it was the next morning at the house before she went. The secret was getting her used to the cage prior, we left the cage in the house and put her toys in it and the occasional treat, we also took her for several long rides in the car in her carrier as well.
