Delta Increases Pet Travel Restrictions
(NEW YORK) -- If you have a ticket on Delta Airlines and you're planning to bring a dog along, you may have to find other arrangements.
Delta is no longer allowing pets as cargo or checked bags on its Boeing 767 planes. The airline plans to add bunks below the passenger cabins for crew members to rest on long overseas flights, filling the cargo area where dogs fly.
The company contacted the affected customers offering alternative options such as moving to earlier or later flights or making use of its airline partners, according to The Seattle Times.
Delta, which has around 95 Boeing 767s, has already banned carrying dogs on international flights. The airline installed lie-flat seats in business class restricting the amount of space available for pets and their carriers.
