My partner and I are about to book a ticket from Spain to Bangkok, Thailand for the beginning of July (for a permanent move to Thailand) and have to decide whether or not to take our old Golden Retriever with us. It is a very long trip and we´re not sure whether it would be good for 9-year old Cally. Anyway, if we decide to take her, do airlines have a standard charge for taking large dogs in the cargo hold? I understand it is treated as excess baggage. What could the costs approximately be? The airline will probably be Spanair/Lufthansa VLC-MUC-BKK or Turkish Airlines BCN-IST-BKK.
