JetBlue wants to chare $10 each cat. Anyone fly their cats Stx to PR? What airline did you use and how was your experience?

Cape Air also charges a $10 pet fee. Keep in mind that their cabins are not climate-controlled, though -- can be hot and stuffy for both humans and pets.

See if you can use a soft-sided pet carry-on. I flew my cats in the cabin of the plane using such a carrier.

We have used Seaborne on several occasions to transport cats from PR to STX.

Seaborne allows the cats to be in the cabin in a soft or hard pet carrier. You must coordinate ahead of time to insure the flight is available for the pet; i.e the way I understood Seaborne rules, only allows pets from one passenger per flight.

I recommend you call Seaborne direct and discuss----or any airlines you decide to use.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL...! NOT $10 ... I meant $100 ... sorry!

I may not be able to take them the same day I leave, that is why I am looking to ship. Just checking my options 🙂

That sounds more like what I would expect from JetBlue. If you CAN take them with you when you travel, CapeAir charges $10 per pet (not $100!!), and they fly with you in the cabin. It can be a warm ride, but a lot better than the frightening experience of being treated as luggage and tossed into a cargo hold.

I doubt you will find a cheaper option than $100 per animal for shipping them as cargo. Never flown with Seaborne, so it would definitely be worth checking out what they have to offer.

Keep in mind that you risk your animal's life by shipping him or her as airline cargo, never mind that it is a traumatic experience for many animals. "According to the federal Agriculture Department, 189 animals died on commercial flights from June 2005 to June 2011...." Source: NY Times
