  • Switching flights with a dog with 1 hr layover
    Jul 19, 2014
    4
    I am flying from Washington, to Norfolk, Virginia, on the 23rd of July. I have a 1 hr and 5 min layover in Dallas. I am bringing my small dog. He already has his health certificate and carrier. The first flight is 4 hours long, and the second is 3, so I will need to take him to a pet relief area between the two flights. My concern is that I have to find time to pay for his ticket for each flight, as well as get him to the pet relief area, and find my way back through security, with in one hour. I am absolutely unwilling to place him in the cargo hold. This layover will be from 11:55- 12:50. What can I do to ensure that I can make this flight on time, with my dog in the cabin with me? I am willing to switch flights if possible. Please let me know how I may deal with this situation. The gate numbers are not yet posted, but I am flying on Wednesday the 23rd. My assumption is that this is not a busy day, and based off of this chart I am assuming the actual security check point won't have a wait time longer than 25 minutes tops. How might I find out about the other wait times and travel times? Thank you.

     

    Unless you purchased two separate flights you won't have to pay a second cabin pet fee in Dallas. Security wait times at DFW are generally short as there are many many checkpoints. Just take the dog outside right after you arrive - you should have plenty of time to get back through security before your next flight.

     

    Thanks!!!

     

    If the kennel with dog can fit under the seat in front of you, your airline may allow you to bring the dog onboard free. Check with your airline. Google ahead for airport map to see where pet reliefs are located. (As of August 2013 the Pet Relief area at DFW was at Terminal E, area 34.) American AL uses A, B, C & D terminals!

     

    Ignore sajul - he is incorrect.
