Guess I am starting to worry a bit to early. We are planning to fly from Virginia back to Dallas next summer. We will be flying American Airlines.

There is NO WAY I would check Tucker as baggage. I have a few concerns. First the website says dogs under six months. How they gonna know he will be a year old? Most of the time Tucker is quiet but what if he starts barking before we get on the plane? It scares me to think we plan the trip, pay for tickets and at the last min. they say "Sorry, He can't get on. " My hubby would leave me before he would leave Tucker.

I know a lot of you have flown with your babies. I need all the input you can give me. Tucker usually doesn't bark but if someone see's him in his carrier and comes close to him I do fear he will bark.

All help is welcome

Thanks a lot for all the advice. We talked last night about finding the "right" bag to use. He has a bag now that zips up but not sure it is Airline approved.

My understanding is you don't have to buy a seat but just a ticket. He will fly at my feet if I understand right.

We were reading the info last night on the website and it looked like so much. Maybe I am just nervous about it.

How do they know his age? Do you think that will be a problem?
