Pet weight restriction from US
I just had a TAP representative inform me that the US is now restricting the total weight (dog plus crate) to 70 lbs (31 kg). I am incredulous. My dog is not so large, at 60 pounds, but with the crate, total weight is 95 lbs. I was told a few days ago that the restriction was 99 pounds (45 kg). There is no option of paying a higher fee for overweight, US is simply restricting, according to the agent.
I plan to call KLM (no direct flights like TAP though) and confirm this. But, has anyone else heard this??
After reading this, we looked it up on the TapAir website and that is what their official policy is. So...we may be scrambling also. These last two days have been poor in terms of moving to Portugal related news.
Is it possible to fly Lufthansa. I would urge you to go with them.
This is distressing. We have a 106 lb. labrador and he obviously won't fit into any of these restrictions. Fortunately we have quite a bit of time before our actual move, so I will be doing a lot of research between now and then.
Grateful for the heads up!
Thank you! I'll definitely contact them. We had really wanted to travel on the same flight with him, but it remains to be seen now if that will be possible. He's a big guy, but he's our baby!
