Hello folks, I've made a post before asking for advice about pet travel. There's one question that's been eating at me and we're booking our flight tomorrow and I hope someone can help. I know that the "reservation" is not a guarantee to get your pet onboard. So how can I ensure that he does? We are moving halfway across the country and leaving him behind is not an option. I know that getting to the airport early is the best advantage we have, but what about the rest of our journey? Is there a chance halfway through our journey one of the planes will say "sorry he can't come on"? I'm just worried sick that we will be turned away.

Hello everyone. My husband and I are planning to move from the east coast to central US. We will be taking out cat with us in-cabin and I would love some advice or stories from folks about their experiences. (Neither of us drive so that is not an option for us) I know that once we book our flights, we are to call and "reserve" a spot for him and pay once we get there. I know that the best way to make sure he gets onboard is to get there early, but I've read people's accounts of being turned away because of other passengers allergies and that worries me. How did you prep your cat for long travel? Did your cat make a lot of noise or did they calm down? What was going through security like? Any tips for what to expect would be really helpful in calming my nerves.
