The airlines are makeing me crazy! I am trying to plan a training trip to Dean Calderons' kennel in Tulsa Oklahoma for Arkane and myself from 3/19 to 3/26. American Airlines has a weight restriction for dog + crate of 100 lbs, so they won't work. United has no weight restriction, but has to stop in Denver and if the temp is below 45F /7C dog can't fly. All airlines EXCEPT United will allow the dog to fly down to 20F with a Certificate of Acclimation. The airlines will make me use a 500 crate, which will only fits on a 700 series plane or an airbus, and so far, I can't find any other airline that goes from Los Angeles to Tulsa or Oklahoma City on a big enough plane (Continental is out - they want $300 each way for the dog). I really want to go on the dates I mentioned because there are going to be some other really great people and hot dogs for those dates, but if I can't figure this out, I guess I will have to wait for spring. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate hearing them!
