Pet Friendly Airline Series: An Introduction to Lufthansa

Welcome to week two of our Pet Friendly Airline Series! Last week we covered JetBlue's pet-friendly features, and this week we're turning our attention to Lufthansa, one of the world's busiest airlines and a frequent choice for pet travelers.
This Germany-based airline flies more passengers than any other airline in Europe and has put much effort into accommodating the needs of pet owners. Lufthansa flies pets in the cabin and cargo hold of its passenger planes, and they also have a separate cargo division that transports pets -- Lufthansa Cargo.

In addition to providing a pet-friendly travel experience, they also offer the Lufthansa Animal Lounge in Frankfurt, where pets can spend their layovers in comfort.

So how pet-friendly is Lufthansa? How do you book a flight with them? What will the experience be like for you and your pet? Check back with us throughout the week as we tell you what you need to know about pet-friendly Lufthansa Airways!
