I am happy to hear that since Delta does not believe it can safely transport bulldogs, it will not fly them. That makes good sense and is likely a response to pressure from animal rights groups demanding numbers on how many dogs do not survive transport.
I would like to see airlines make an effort to provide all animals with safer flight options. There are various good reasons that, at some point, a bulldog or other animal will need to be flown somewhere. Shouldn't there be some options for pet owners (and breeders) to safely transport their animals?
I saw something on the news about an airline bought a few planes and stripped down their insides to specifically transport pets. Petairways sounds like it's on to something here!
