Airlines that allow pets in the cabin

Hello,

I would just like to share the results of my google searches and reading several airline websites re: traveling with pets in the cabin (as of November 5, 2008). I'm a new member here even though lately I have read a lot of Flyertalk threads about pet travel.

Notes:
1. Some of the airlines in the list have different kennel size requirements depending on the aircraft and/or whether you will use a hard-sided or a soft-sided pet carrier.
2. Some of the airlines do not allow pets in the cabin on flights to or from certain countries (e.g. Australia, Hong Kong).
3. Different airlines have different definitions of "pet" (e.g. some allow only cats and dogs in the cabin).

Please check the airline's website or call reservations for more info.

Airline - Max. Pet Carrier Dimensions (LxWxH) - Max. Weight of Pet+Carrier
Thai Airways - 56x38x30 cm - 10 kg (I got this info by calling Thai Airways and I've decided to use them because my cat weighs 6 kg)
Austrian - 55x40x23 cm - 8 kg

Note, you might want to embed your table with [code] tags to preserve spacing, since it's really hard to read with variable HTML spacing. Otherwise, great job!
