      Hi there! I'm going to be flying FCO-ATL on the 13th of December, and I'm planning on bringing my cat with me. I'm a travel companion and I've been trying to figure out the fees for in-cabin pet travel but it's been murky at best. My sister (employee) sent me a chart she found on the employee website that says that the fee for in-cabin pets is waived for all non-rev passengers and is dated 16 Nov 2011. I'm planning on printing out the chart and bringing it with me, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on any more recent updates to the fee schemes?Thanks!

      The only thing I can add at this time is NO animals are permitted in the First/Business class due to the factthat the underseat space is taken up by the reclining seat to bed hardware.That limits your pet carriage to coach. There is a limit as to how many pets can be accomodated topside onall flights. If your pet goes into the cargo hold below then revenue charges prevail.Be sure to check for the "RED TAPE" (aka Health Certificate) of bringing a pet into the USA from a foreign country.Finally I checked and I do not see any changes to the traveling with pet(s) so your sisters chart would becorrect.In closing it is a shame that Delta does not have an answer person/booth/place/or computer google toprovide direction and up to date answers to questions such as this.This forum is of too small structure to have an audience of airline people who can provide these up to dateanswers. Bear in mind my answers are dated like I resemble that remark and can only interpret what I readin Deltas computer PDF files etc.If you were flying the reverse route - you could make a dry run to the airport and get answers - this is notpractical for your planning from FCO (Rome) to ATL (Atlanta). But then maybe this might be of some help.rma

      Thanks so much for the thorough and informative reply! It is a bit frustrating that this whole process is a bit like groping blindly in the dark, but my travel companion benefits have served me well so far so I'm trying to just shoulder on. I've called Delta's reservation desk and they've confirmed the fee-less travel for pets in-cabin for non-revvers. However, trying to find out what the dimensions of the under-seat space was another matter altogether, and I'm basically banking on the fact that my carrier is only a cm longer than the Sherpa Pet Carrier supposedly licensed by Delta for in-cabin pet transport. I've gotten a "certificate of exposition" from Italy which is basically a vet's health form that certifies good health and is intended to allow a pet participation in an expo, so I'm hoping that will be above and beyond considering the only expo that my cat's going to is the one in my parents living room. I'll probably call again to Delta today to make sure that they know there will be a pet on stand-by for that flight. Hopefully they'll be able to give me an idea of if there have been pets booked onto the flight already!Worst nightmare would be having to leave the airport to find a hardcase kennel for her to be checked in, but I'm pretty sure it'll all go smoothly as other internet accounts of flying with pets on Delta have been favorable.Thanks again!

      I believe that Emergency Exit rows and bulkhead seats are in the RED ZONE – so NO animals there.Some aircraft have an electronics package for the IFE (In Flight Entertainment) in/under the windowseats - so try and stay away from there.Also a good reference would be the size of the maximum carry on bag underseat dimensions forfor your pet carrier.Hopefully you will find a flight where you get the asile seat and the center seat is open for the pet.Economy Comfort the first 3 or 4 rows after the bulkhead row behind Business Class would be theultimate best you could get. But this is prime space after Business Class on a long haul flight withmany standbys not a likely senario.Good Luck!rma
