    i heard an interview with an industry expert who pretty much laughed at the idea and said it had basically zero chance of success. i have to echo those sentiments.

    There web blog states their first flight is in July and they had so many reservation attempts and visits to their site in April that it crashed.

    Unfortunately, I am not along their route in Oklahoma, but for their introductory price of $149 (plus probably other charges not listed), I would certainly give it a try, especially on larger dogs or if a had a client concerned about air cargo.

    That looks really awesome!!!! What a cool idea. I hope it works out for them. Seems like just the new york to LA flight would work between celebrities and business people... (well, a lot of them have their own planes, but still).

    I really love the idea, esp the potty break before the flight. I, for one, am really impressed with it. You can tell they put the thought into what animals need.

    I thought the same of a start up company back in '77 "Federal Express".

    This could become more than just pets.

    I figure with the pets in the passenger area , lots of room in the cargo area , as most pets will not have luggage ??!!. So more revenue for the airline that way.
