A vacation just isn't a vacation if you spend the entire time worrying about your pet at home, so taking them with you seems like the only way to have a truly enjoyable traveling experience, right? In many ways, yes, but it can be a little tricky finding an airline that will allow your furry friend to fly in-cabin.
We did a little digging and found all the major airlines that allow pets to fly the friendly skies so you can live a jet-set lifestyle without agonizing over a lonely dog or cat left behind.
*Please note that many of the airlines listed have an additional carry-on pet charge that you must pay upon check-in at the airport.

Once you've decided on the perfect pet carrier, be sure to book your flight reservation early, as many airlines allow only a certain number of in-cabin pets per flight. Before booking any trip, always check with the airline for the most up-to-date information about how to fly in-cabin with your pet.
