Delta Will Stop Letting Pets Fly As Checked Baggage

NEW YORK (AP) — Delta won't let you check your pets as baggage next year. Starting in March, bigger animals will have to fly on Delta's cargo service.

         That's typically pricier than checking pets as baggage. It can also be less convenient since the pet may not be shipped with a customer's flight.

         United Airlines also doesn't allow pets to be checked in as baggage.

         Delta Air Lines Inc. will allow certain members of the military to check pets as baggage as well as customers with service or emotional support animals.

         And dogs and cats can still fly with their owners on Delta flights, for a fee, if they fit in a pet carrier under a seat.
