Pet Peeve: Airfares for Pets Increase
In the new Travel with Pets forum, FlyerTalk member obscure2k posted a link to a news article which discusses the increase in airfares for transporting pets.
However, there is apparently a bright side to the airfare increases to transport pets: FlyerTalk member RSSrsvp says here: “Kudos to the airlines that are giving extra miles/points/free pet travel bonuses to people traveling with their pets. If they are going to charge such a high tariff we should at the very least receive something in return.”
For additional information, including just how much it might cost to transport Fido and Whiskers and when these airfare increases are scheduled to take effect, please refer to the Airlines Hike Pet Fares thread.
