From rats to bats, the top 10 animals found on board: revealed.Pet travel: flying with pets, airline policies and feesThinking of flying with pets? If you’re planning a trip with your best friend then you need to know how much it’ll cost and that your animal will be transported safely and in comfort. Here’s everything you need to know about travelling with your beloved pet, from taking your dog…7 of the weirdest travel stories of 2014Pigs on planes, windowless flights and other wacky travel stories from the last 12 months. Ever wanted to see pigs fly? Well now’s your chance.According to new rules, pot-bellied pigs could be allowed to take to the skies if owners can prove they provide ‘emotional support’.The US Department of Transport’s draft manual on equality for disabled travellers on commercial flights states that small ‘service’ animals should be permitted on flights.Sensitive hogs, miniature horses and monkeys are all considered supportive aids. Miniature horses are particularly useful for the visually impaired. But strictly no snakes or spiders will be authorised on board. No monkey business will be tolerated by airline crew and owners must provide a privy for their pet.There’s no point complaining either, if the tiny pony delays the drinks trolley because it’s blocking the aisle. Reports from Fox news suggest complaints from other passengers are not considered legitimate reasons for denying a passenger with a disability. This announcement will surely make PetAirways happy, who announced back in 2009 that they were launching a crusade to revolutionise the way our pets voyage.Wendy Ponzo, a spokesperson from the North American Potbellied Pig Association welcomed the news and praised her pet’s sixth sense at detecting when she’s unwell. However, the news has sparked fears that some flyers will attempt to cheat the system and claim they cannot travel without their special companions. Yet the manual does state that staff have the right to verify claims and ask about any training the animal has had.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img
