Letting The Cat Out Of The Bag... Inflight

On a recent flight (CO 733) from MIA-EWR, I was sitting in seat 5A. This gave me a view of a first class passenger in seat 4E through the curtain. About halfway through the flight, this guy takes out his cat and starts playing with it - rubbing his nose on the cat's, talking to it, etc. No bag, no cage, nothing.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I did not think this was allowed. I guess the f/a didn't see him, because I'm sure she would have something. Can someone please shed some light on this - is it allowed?

On a US flight there was a pug who ran up and down the aisle while the airplane was airborne, and on a Delta flight there was a lady with a miniture horse in first class.

PS I wonder if I could take an elephant onboard?

Judging from the size of the man sitting next to me on a recent flight, its size shouldn't be a problem  Big grin

I was sitting near a CO gate for a flight from EWR-SEA. This lady had a dog in a cage but it was out of the cage when she boarded the flight and the ticket collector saw and said nothing. I did not go on that flight so I don't know what happened.

One time on the shuttle to NY from DC (years ago) I saw a guy get on with his very cute Jack Russell under his arm. It was a late, almost empty flight, and no one made an issue of it -- nor should they have, really.

Milldoh-Legally an animal is supposed to stay in the carrier in which they were boarded. Granted I have seen them taken out of their carriers on some of my past flights, but each and every time I asked for them to be put back in the carrier the owner complied.
Iainhol-a minature horse, really! What Delta flight and what sectors?

A lady in the row in front on a Continental flight from Miami to Houston (737-300 fact fans) had a cute dog in a pet carrier and had it on her lap for most of the flight, didn't seem to be a problem. I thought it was pretty cool actually. Dog was quite happy to sit there and look out the window.

I wonder what a pet or infant would make of the view? My 2 year old nephew didn't seem to be too impressed when we went to Corsica (British Midland A321 - nice) but he enjoyed the landing, laughing hysterically and shouting "Bollocks" - he knows about six words and that's the one I taught him, by accident. What a great godfather I am turning out to be.

Btw when I saw this thread I thought the name of the topic was code for inflight flashers, there was one once on a TWA flight from JFK to LHR I was on, some guy stood up on the centre seats (747-100) in the first row of our section, turned to face everyone and got his cat out of his bag so to speak. I don't think anyone was too impressed.

I remember once I was going to FRA from LAX on Lufthansa (744), and when it got dark, I was watching a movie on the PTV, and glanced over to the left, and I saw this older couple sitting together. There was something on the lady's lap. I was wondering what the heck it was, then it moved. Then it looked up...it was a little maltese. I had no idea you could bring animals aboard the plane..It was business class too, spoiled little dog! of course, all maltese's are usually spoiled!

take care,

On a FRA-TXL flight there was a fully-grown brown bear on board on his way to the Berlin zoological garden. Its box was placed on the lower deck and he was sedated. Yet he sometimes moved and growled. I wasn't sure if this was a hoax, but you could hear the growling quite well. The captain said several times during boarding, that people sitting in the first 10-15 rows (A300-600) shouldn't be alarmed, that there is a bear on board, sedated and locked in, nothing to worry, but some peole did look a bit uneasy. Fortunately they didn't let him out during the flight.


I know it's only VfB but I like it!
