    Default Help ....... trying to fly a dog to USA

    A friend of ours has a dog, large, he weighs about 120lbs with the crate, they need to fly him from North Coast to Seattle area USA.

    Apparently AA wants US$2,700 to transport the dog!!! :O

    Any suggestions/solutions please?

    P.S.
    They came down here in September with no problems ...... the bar stewards have changed the rules since then!

    The time of year makes a difference.

    Can they change airlines? Different Airlines have different rules. Some will not fly any pets below that time of year. They might have to pay up. I know of a few Airlines that would not take dogs over 100 pounds...

    Good Luck!

    My friends words " okay, Delta now says NO! after they told us earlier yes, to the tune of $1200... USD of course.... Pete talked to someone at American Airlines, they want $2700 and that's a maybe because of the heat restrictions... and it's flying out of Santo Damingo! **** ME!! I was wondering if Mark could ask on DR1 if anyone knows of a way we can get him home. He's about 120 pounds with the crate and the crate is a 700 series... otherwise, I am stuck in Luperon until God knows when... I'm about ready to cry!!"

    I just looked online at there website and it doesn't say any restrictions from DR to US. I would call and ask to talk to the manager and make a stink about it! All it says is that checked pets are $175, no other fees!
    I know my airline and some others don't fly checked pets at this time of year, I don't know if that would be the case for the price or not?!

    I did have to wait to move to the DR for a month because of all the restrictions during Xmas time....
