Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Take this by means of example.
Pet Airways – the first pets-only airline where the furry friends travel in the cabin as opposed to the baggage hold.
Watch as the airline demonstrates how its pet attendant takes care of the pets at all times to keep doggy tales wagging.
Pet Airways first flights will be to New York, Balt./Wash D.C., Chicago, Denver and, Los Angeles.
Pets - or ‘pawsengers’, as the airline likes to cals them - can be booked in online (PetAirways.com) and are checked in to a Pet Lounge at the airport.
Animals are given a "potty break" shortly before take-off and then monitored by pet attendants during the flight.
Owners - or Pet Parents – have the opportunity to follow their travel progress using an online "pet tracker".
