Occasionally airlines and airports make important announcements regarding pet policies (or policies in general) that may require passengers to make other arrangements. Here are a couple of things to be aware of if you’ll be traveling with pets anytime soon:
-Until further notice, Lufthansa will not be shipping any live animals from Chicago O’Hare (ORD) or Detroit Metro Airport (DTW).
-Starting yesterday, Cathay Pacific Airlines will no longer accept snub-nosed breed pets, which include pugs, bulldogs and Himalayan and Persian cats. They cite safety reasons (brachycephalic breeds have a greater risk of overheating and suffering from breathing problems) and join a few other airlines in operating with a similar policy.
