The Scoop: Southwest Airlines Now Flies the Pet-Friendly Skies

For those frequent furry fliers, there's a new available airline in town — Southwest. Starting today, customers can purchase pet tickets for travel beginning on June 17. The P.A.W.S. program runs $75 each way for small, in-cabin dogs or cats.

The rules are pretty standard compared to other airlines — one carrier per person that counts as the carry-on — but there's no mention of the standard 20-pound weight limit ("The dog or cat must be able to stand up and turn around in the carrier with ease.") and each carrier can hold no more than two of the same species of small cats or dogs. So tiny pup owners wouldn't need to grab a pal to carry both dogs on board under the plan. Would this decision now make you choose Southwest over another airline?

Awesome! I don't think I could fit both my babies in a single carrier, though - they're a combined total of 23lbs!

Heck yea, SW always has super good deals! I don't think I could fit both my dogs in one carrier though, one is 12 and the other 6lbs
