On the LX website it says that pax who sit in F or J on the Airbus 330/340 must place their pet (in the appropriate contiainer) in the overhead lockers, the wardrobe or under some economy class seat fr take off and landing as the room "under the seat in front" does not provide the space needed...?

I don't understand this. There is enough room to convert the J-seat into a bed...and the F-seat offers TONS of room (like the open compartment under the ottoman). Why would someone agree to have their pet put in a overhead locker or wardrobe (which are closed and DARK) for landing and takeoff?

Does anyone know other airlines that follow the same procedure?

Pretty standard operating procedure.

For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and ther
