Pet Carrier Guidelines: For pets traveling in cabin/carry-on, non-collapsible kennels cannot exceed the under seat dimensions of any aircraft included in your journey. Soft-sided collapsible kennels can be slightly larger, but still need to fit under the seat without having to excessively collapse the kennel, have to be secure, padded, made of water-repellant material and have nylon mesh ventilation on 2 or more sides. Pets must be able to stand up, turn around and lie down in a natural position, without touching any side or top of the carrier.
For pets traveling in cargo, pets must be able to stand up, turn around and lie down in a natural position, without touching any side or top of the carrier. Pet carriers must be made of wood, metal, plastic or a similar material. The carriers must have ventilation on at least three sides for domestic U.S. travel, and all 4 sides for international travel. The maximum size for checked kennels is a series 500 kennel, but kennels must not exceed the maximum size requirements for the particular aircraft. Series 700 kennels are not allowed on any aircraft. There must also be a small bag of food for a 24-hour period attached to the top of the kennel.
