PETS on Board - Delta Air Lines
 
we are flying from Atlanta to San Jose in mid-July, and want to fly first class. We are bringing a small dog. We have flown with this dog for years. Can he fly with us in First Class???

Delta allows pets in the cabin in First Class on domestic flights, so, yes, you are able to fly F with him. Call Delta to determine maximum carrier dimensions allowed - they are aircraft-dependent.
As capacity is limited to two pet carriers for the first class cabin and they are accepted on a first-come,first-served basis, make arrangements as far in advance as possible.

What is Deltaís policy on pets in Delta One to Europe?

It is not as simple as "Europe". EU with a subset of UK/ROI may matter as may aircraft time. All explained in detail on DL's website:

Delta One on international routes, no matter the destination, is not allowed with pets in the cabin. Internationally, on Delta one needs to travel Economy with a pet.
JV partner Air France also prohibits PETC in business class on longhaul flights ( but allows them in F, PE and Y), as does KLM, where passengers with pet carriers have to travel Economy. Virgin Atlantic is not an option at all.The only Delta partner where pets in the cabin are OK in business class transatlantic is Alitalia. 10kg weight limit, $200 one way (EUR 250 on the way back).

I am looking at taking spouse and 13 lb Lhasa Apso in late Dec to GSP. This is a one-way FC ticket as I will be picking up an X5 at the BMW plant in Spartanburg.

OKC-ATL is MD88 so I should be okay but ATL-GSP is an RJ. So what would happen with the RJ with no FC? Must I fly to ATL then take a rental to Spartanburg?

You'll be booked into Y on segments on RJs without a First cabin - no need to drive. The ATL-GSP segment isn't operated by DL mainline but by several regional carriers branded as Delta Connection. As far as I know, carry-on pets generally are accepted on all of them in all classes of service. Check here for details: https://www.delta.com/us/en/pet-trav...ion-pet-travel, and make sure the agent you talk to is aware of the carrier change in ATL so your pet is booked correctly the whole way.
However, if you are flexible with your timing and willing to juggle connections around a bit, there's options where you'll be able to sit in F on both segments: Endeavor Air (dba Delta Connection) offers some ATL-GSP flights on CRJ 900s, and those have 12 F seats.

Emotional support dogs are allowed in Delta One (past rules). Nobody understands the new rules. If your dog is a service dog (trained) then allowed. IF ESD/Pysch service dog then not anywhere if trip > 8 hours. And instead of "any doctor's note" as in the past, as to be a note from a mental care specialist. American and Delta will now call the doc and ask "why"

The airlines have really restricted ESAs. Never on flights > 8 hours (Atl to Paris 8 hour 15 min - NOT allowed). (JFK to Paris 7 hours 45 min - Allowed). Nice you go through Paris so no problem if it is a Delta (US registered). BUT, I don't believe Delta has a direct flight from JFK anymore. If the CDC to NCE is Air France Not allowed. Your best bet is to fly to Paris and then train to Nice. American uses British Air and again NO. I also don't think any US airline flys from Nice anymore.

Thanks for the reply. There is a seasonal direct JFK to NCE. Delta 412 , perhaps. 8 hours 24 minutes. So Bowser stays home.

Gadot Feb 14, 19 8:28 am

Has anyone flown under the new rules. JFK to Paris is 7 hours and 45 min (atl in 8 hours and 15 min) but on return, both are 30 min longer. Am I going to have problems in Paris coming home. I note that American does not have this restriction. I guess I could call her a service dog but....
