Moving to STX in March, need to get a 119 lb Great Dane down with me...

Decided after years of long term vacations, it was time to leave Minnesota and move to STX. I'm an attorney licensed in MN and federal court (yes, I'm looking for work down there too).

My dog is my kid and I have to figure out how to fly her from MIA to STX. Anyone know of an airline who will fly a Dane? If not, does anyone know how much private transport from MIA to STX would be?

Thanks!

Since there is only one airline that flies from MIA to STX, I suggest that you call American and ask.

You can always charter a private jet. I think that runs $12-15,000.00

A great Dane requires the Extra large kennel and AA flies a 737 MIASTX not sure if that particular plane can take an XL kennel

When checking in your pet, there are specific requirements for their kennel:
Up to 40in x 27in x 30in or 102cm x 69cm x 76cm*
Large enough for your pet to stand, turn, sit and lie down in a natural position

This poster recently asked about getting a Great Dane from the STT airport to and on the ferry to St John but said there was no problem flying him from MIA to STT so you may want to check with him/her:
