Is Air Canada Barking Up The Wrong Tree?

I can understand how this could be a problem for people with severe dander allergies - the mother of one of my sons friends is so allergic to cats that her son has to change his clothes after hes been to my house.

However, Id never put my cat in cargo! Been there, done that, and the airline lost my cats for 24 hours. They ended up on the wrong plane despite us paying more to have them ""escorted"". [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Personally, Id love to see a ban on perfume as well. That stuff just kills me!

Hooray for Southwest on this one. And for Air Canada.

Why are people taking animals on the plane??? Ive never figured that one out. (Going Nuts--no offense to you personally--I just dont get it.) Ive heard of people taking their animals on board in a crate that fits under the seat, and thats too much for me. But on a lap????? Thats beyond comprehension.

This is something I have feared. Ive never had to deal with it thankfully, but I would have a really bad reaction if a cat were next to me. Of course, I would request/demand another seat--or rather, that the person with the cat move. If I were seated near someone with a service animal, I would request that my seat be changed. Service animal or no, dander is dander, and I could not be near it.

If airlines have to make accomodations for pets, then I would think it best to arrange for a place in the back part of the plane, but the pets would have to make up for the revenue lost from those seats somehow. And thats probably not going to happen.

I also wouldnt want to put my pet in the cargo area. But I couldnt see taking it on an airplane because I know people are allergic to rabbits. It just wouldnt be fair to them.

McCobbre,

Sometimes you just cant help taking your pet with you. I have had to do it twice. Not a pleasant experience for the pet or me. I had no other choice. I could not leave it in the apartment while I was gone. Sitters were not available, pet kennels full...etc..both of my regular sitters were also out of town. I had no other choice other than not going to my brothers wedding. And yes, I did start making plans well in advance. (+4 months)

I have seen many people take questionable things on board a plane. I use to travel alot. So many episodes of peanuts and food that I just expect it now. During ONE trip I saw a spare tire, toliet seat and fishing pole make it to the cabin with the passenger.
