Default Flying pets to Canada

Hi All
I wanted to ask if anyone has experience with Delta Airlines in particular using them for pet transportation to Canada. Also if its at all possible to hire
the 'pet crates' or are they only available for purchase. We have 2 dogs
1 lab 1 cocker and are currently looking into the available options and whether we can make arrangements directly with the airlines as some insist you must use a pet shipping agents.
All advice / help very must appreciated

Hi Piff
many thanks , i'd already looked over many of the above threads but could not
find any info on Delta Airlines and Pet transportation experience with them in particular, having spoken to several airlines Delta seem to be the best on price and would be interested to hear from anyone who has used them for pet transportation .

You could be better off posting in the USA forum about Delta Airlines - just for the general idea??

Hey Buddy, we're over here in Lethbridge at the mo on our landing trip.

We've got 3 Huskies to bring over and at the mo our cheapest option looks like Animal Airlines with a quote of £2300

Never heard of Delta airlines so can't help out there, ours would be flying with Thomas Cook from Manchester. If you sort anything cheaper pal can you let me know and any idea where you're heading for now?

Anyway buddy take it easy

Regards

I used Air Transat / Thomas Cook and did it all myself - so that makes it cheaper - I bought crates off ebay and have kept them in case need to get dogs back to Uk = they live in the garage and thats where the dogs go when we are out ! They are happy in em

When I get a bigger car / truck I will put one on the back for them = rather than being stuffed in the back of a mazda 3 hatch!

That doesn't sound bad for three huskies i got quoted £1,800 for my lab! must have a silk bed and chandalier included! I will try animal airlines, but might try to do it without the pet company to try to save a few pennies.
