Molly and I went on our first flight together yesterday, and it was amazing! When we got to the airport, I was prepared for the worst, Molly being too big to fly in cabin. I checked in, and paid for Molly's ticket and no one even looked in her carrier. She isn't too large, shes the right size, but shes poofy, so you never know. I arrived 3 hours early, just in case, so we had time to kill. I took her to the pet relief area and she met a few other pups getting ready for flights. Once she was done we made our way to security. It went well, no one noticed that I actually had her in my bag until I had to pull her out to go through security. She was a little nervous when she got out because of how many people were around, but she did good with it.
We had to sit in the terminal for quite a bit waiting for the plane, and again no one noticed I had my baby girl with me the whole time. once we were on the plane, i tucked her in under the seat and in an instant she was asleep! I couldn't believe it! I fussed about her barking and making noise. and she just went to sleep. The only time she made a noise was wen I went to the bathroom and she didn't know where I was. We had an hour layover in Chicago, so I took her out to the pet relief area again, and to my dismay and Molly's, it was a rock filled area. This BLEW my mind. There were rocks in a pet relief area. What dog prefers to do their business on a bunch of rocks? Needless to say I had to break some rules and take her to a grassy area so she would potty. We went back through security and made our way to the terminal and the second flight went just as smoothly as the first. We made it to Ohio in one piece!
If you're flying with your Corgi, i defiantly recommend Southwest, the flight attendants were very great making sure that Molly was comfortable and the cost of flying across the country with Molly was great, round trip was only $360 for molly and me!
