How to Travel with your Pets Onsite for Your Next Meeting

petairwayscom pet airlines How to Travel with your Pets Onsite for Your Next Meeting
I saw this post on ConventionPlanit and it made me think of my own 2 dogs, 2 kittens, 2 parrots, 18 fish and 60k Bees we have at our house (or Zoo). When I fly, I really can’t take them all with me. The logistics would be a hassle.. I never thought about bringing them all along until now!
Check out what Conventionplanit alerted me to.

Frequent travelers forced to leave their furry friends behind when flying have a new option…

Pet Airways debuts tomorrow as the U.S.’s first pet-only airline. Pets will travel in the main cabin, not the cargo hold of the planes.

The airline strives to protect the comfort and safety of pets, who are often injured in unsafe cargo conditions. Flights will serves New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles to start, with plans to expand nationwide.

Owners can book online and even track the progress of their pet’s flight at http://www.petairways.com.

Is this a service you will use?

Airline Losses Are Higher Than Expected

Airline losses in the fourth quarter higher than expected

Airline losses in the fourth quarter were $4 billion, considerably higher than first expected and leading to a total 2008 loss of $8 billion, according to a Monday report from the International Air Transport Association.

Two weeks ago, the trade group forecast a $5 loss for the full year. “Unlike earlier in the year, airlines are now losing money at the operating level,” IATA said in a statement. Airlines also parked 73 older aircraft in the recent quarter as they cut capacity to meet falling demand. “Load factors have been falling sharply since September, as airlines have found demand falling away faster than they have been able to cut capacity,” the group said. “In January average load factors were 2.8% points below the level of the previous year.”
