I have a empty leg flight leaving Miami going to St.Croix . Days are flexible. Anytime time after November 15th. The flight is $3500. The plane seats 4 with two chairs taken out to make room for my dog and any other dog that may need to fly too.
Please if anyone knows anybody interested in this flight let me know a.s.a.p. I need to book it in the next few days. If I can not find anyone interested in sharing the flight I will have to pass it up and fly commercial with my dog.
After a long long journey I will finally be moving to St.Croix!!!!!!
You may have discussed it here already and I missed it but if you're flying out of Miami why not take the direct jet flight? It's a 737 right now and around mid-November is when I heard some of the flights are going to bigger planes but even the 737 should be able to accomodate a 500-series size kennel if your dog is big.
It's really not a long flight and when you go to the vet for the health certificate for travel just get the travel pills which are a mild sedative to keep the pets relaxed. I brought 2 dogs from Seattle to STX in the middle of summer last year and it was a pain in the butt to work around the heat embargoes (had to do two overnights to get early AM direct connect flights) but doable. By mid-November I imagine it would be much easier to fly without having to rent a charter.
Another option if you're willing to spend $3,500 already is to save a few thousand and send your pet via Delta jet flight. They have the best pet accomodations/care program from what I've read and they do have direct jet flights to STX out of ATL I believe.
