Is the Embraer 145 baggage bin pressurized? I was told it was not during my Expressjet training and for that reason they do not allow animals in kennels. There's also a sign on the bin wall that says NO ANIMALS THIS BIN.

When I pop open the vent and open the door it is ICE cold. I have to admit, it feels good on a 100 degree day! But is it really not pressurized or just not temperature controlled?

Also, I've seen boxes from the Red Cross of human blood to offload. The boxes say "avoid extreme temperatures". How cold does it get in flight? If not pressurized I would imagine it would be similar to the outside temp which is below zero so how is that not extreme temperature?

The cargo compartment is contained within the pressure vessel of the aircraft so it should be pressurized. There is no direct control of the temperature within the baggage compartment but the temperature of the compartment will not drop as low as the outside air temp at cruise altitudes. It should be near the temperature of the cabin.

The air from the passenger compartment flows thru the lavatory into the baggage compartment then into the aft equipment bay then out thru the outflow valves

Cargo compartments on ALL commercial jet aircraft are pressurized. The reason no pets are allowed is due to heat in the summer months...and most likely liability

I think it must be an Expressjet policy. Because I know Trans States can take live animals, and we routinely send them, in AX E145's.

Lighten up while you still can, don't even try to understand, just find a place to make your stand and take it easy

The bin is pressurized, however is not individually heated or cooled. I believe their were several incidents involving pet deaths and injuries related to the lack of ventilation and extreme temperatures in the bin which led to the no pet policy. However other operators of the type such as Chautauqua allow pets in the bin, on the same type of aircraft.

Time to spare? Go by air!

On MQ the issue isn't with the bag bin being conditioned, but rather the conditions (especially heat) outside that impacts our ability to ship checked animals. Generally, only to cool destinations less than like 75 degrees.
