Some people’s pets are like kids to them…and any parent would go nuts if you put their kid in the cargo hold. That’s why Pet Airways will fly your furry friend to your desired destination on their own fleet of planes on pets-only flights.
Pet Airways only flies to five cities in the U.S. and charges a flat, one-way fee of $250. But pet owners interviewed by the AP say the cost is worth the piece of mind knowing their basset hound or tabby cat will be escorted onto the flight along with about 50 other pets, checked on every 15 minutes during the flight, and given a bathroom break on the layover. Flights are already booked up for two months! Is it just me, or does this business idea sound like the really bad plot of a kids’ movie? [Or my dream job. -- Editor] [AP]
