My last trip on AA was $150 each way..... #5 crate w/ a Boxer (55lbs.)
It was MIA to SDQ.... but it doesn't matter - flat rate
WestJet , in Canada, is $75 r/t - $50 1 way..... same dog, same deal
Air Canada has a policy of 70lb max - kennel + dog...don't know the price b/c I'm over that limit
Continental ships as Cargo... not checked luggage.
So you need to drop off/pickup at the cargo terminal.... quite a pain.
The DR to USA is about $350 each way for my situation
CO is the considered the best in the business... direct hotline to track the dog, etc
BUT..... here's the catch, the airlines have restricted times when no dogs are allowed as baggage.
WestJet just told me this week..... they fly dogs Oct31 to May 1 for DR travel.
They also have an embrgo at Xmas time... Dec18 to early Jan due to heavy passenger loads and baggage
I'm in the middle of all this b/c my dog is in the DR... stuck w/ no exit plan at present.
Hope that helps
Bear in mind that not all airlines are pet friendly.... JetBlue, Spirit... nix
Can you give me more info on the crate you used? Link where I can maybe purchase one? How tall was your dog? $150 sounds very good, was that via carry on or cargo?
When you say you get prefered check in, VIP treatment, you mean from which airline?TravelAire if I recall.... #5 is a good sized kennel.
It goes as checked baggage,,,,, you get prefered check in...VIP treatment and the dog goes off.
They come off the plane first.... very handy.

Sizes are here
Ive only seen up to an Extra Large size. I was thinking I would need a Giant size, which is 35"H, their Extra Large is 30"H. I just dont want to risk having my dog sent back just cause his ears are touching the top of the kennel.With dogs, you go to the front of the line.... no waiting.... I got it w/ all of them I have used - AA, WestJet
Crates go bigger.... mine is #5.... they go to #7 don't they?

Yes, i knew about the temperature requirements. There is also a kennel requirement I recently learned about. They wont accept plastic latches, the hardware that holds the top and button of the kennel must be metal knuts and bolt, not plastic. I called Delta and they confirmed it. If you have a kennel that only uses plastic latches you can always drill holes for nuts and bolts to secure it.
