    Default flying my dog

    Want to bring down my dog and since I go via Miami I have to go American Airlines. They have a ton of restrictions. I am ok with most but there is a temperature limit of 85 degrees forecast for embarkation, stops, and destination. How do I get to the DR via Miami without running into temps at end of May? Anyone have any experience with AA and the temp regulations. How strict are they? Other than flying into Santiago in the middle of the night its pretty hard to stay under 85 degrees. Appreciate any ideas.

    I have never seen them using the temperature rule... but it was years ago.

    I took an early flight out of Miami....
    It seems the boarding temperature is the key.

    Dog flying is getting harder with all Airlines

    How big is your dog? I've seen many more making the trip in the normal cabin with their owners than in years before. Seems like every flight now has 3 or 4. I don't know how they pass security, or the regulations. This is with Jet Blue.

    San Pedro 
    They call them service dogs..... emotional support companion 

    I had a St Bernard on a flight....
    It begged food, talked to people... had it's own boarding pass 

    No service dog.... way too amiable

    All airlines follow those  temp rules now..summer time is at your own risk.plus blackout day in peak busy times no animals..( after being spotlight yrs ago in media of dead animals arriving) ..they also limit how many pets in cabin and cargo most airlines limit to 3..

    I wouldn't trust AA with my dog. They don't care about the passengers so think about how they would treat your dog.

    I despise A.A. but there is no other out of mami. Worst part for me with American is the filthy old planes. Anyone been turned down fling dog as cargo? Too big to go under the sear. It's 9 inches in height and growing.
