After lunch, my coffee has arrived accompanied by curious information on the television news of La Sexta, the inaugural flight in the US of the first pet-only air transport company.
With the name of, how could it be otherwise, Pet airways (Airline Pets) currently only operates in american soil, between the cities of New York, Washington D.C./Baltimore, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles.
Unlike traditional companies, where animals travel in the cargo hold and even reach it, the treatment they receive depends on the goodwill of the employee on duty, in Pet Airways up to 50 of them they can travel in the cabin itself (although, for safety, in individual cage boxes) and from the beginning to the end of the journey they have the attention of personnel specially prepared for it.
How could it be less for such an innovative company, they were born with a page on Facebook, are on Twitter and also offer information and hotel reservation management where pets are welcome.
Given that the rates start at $ 149 (about 106 euros) and that many people consider their pets as family members, it is not surprising that, as I have verified, the online reservation system has collapsed.
Will it take a long time to offer a similar service between countries in Europe?
