I recently came across a post on Facebook by a woman who had an awful experience flying with her pets on United Airlines. Since I receive many emails from readers asking advice about relocating with pets, I wanted to share her experience. Now, I have never been on United and probably never will after seeing this:
Seeing your Taylor Guitar being thrown around by baggage handlers in bad enough, but imagine looking out the window of the plane and seeing your pet's crates sitting on the hot tarmac when clearly you had paid extra for PetSafe (http://www.united.com/web/en-us/content/travel/animals/petsafe.aspx):
I urge anyone needing to relocate animals domestically to rent a car and drive to your destination. For those relocating internationally, I had a positive experience traveling with my dog on Delta/KLM. But please, do research as ask for more than one opinion. Here is the link to the page I wrote about my experience moving a dog to Egypt: http://www.onefleetingglimpse.com/2010/02/moving-your-dog-to-egypt.html
Map of Amman from 1956 - Here’s a really cool map from 1956. For more information, head over to Tobzeh. How small the city was.
