we hope we are not too late to help out!
mommy flew with us all the way from Israel to the east side, after much consideration and using a pet relocation service, we decided the safest way to fly her is with the german airline lufthansa. we heard alot of positive reviews about their human and feline services, and they truly were super great; taking care of all of us, and they were super nice to US (Anna and Katie) who had to go in the cabin with mommy, to make sure she is well taken care of. any way we think she was, she seemed to get some really great food choices during the flight and she seemed pretty pleased with the choices.
the only down side we had was the layover. but the plus side of it is that during the layover we were being taken care of at the great animal lounge lufthansa has in the airport (we had a stop in frankfurt).
we so recommend thinking of a diet to maybe lose a few pounds (we recommend raw meat diet - Lucky the oldest of us lost 8 pounds in only 4 months after mommy transfered us to raw) an over weight kitty is not a healthy and happy kitty!
if despite your mommy wishes you will decide to fly trunk side, there are plenty of great cages, if you can get them we recommend the italian company "ferplast" cages, though we do know they are not common in the US. if it is a pretty short flight than the atlas 40 should be enough, if it is longer than 8 hours than it is best to get the Atlas 50. if not any strong plastic dog carrier will do.
and you mustn't forget to put holes and tie with those plastic handcuffs, for extra strength so the cage won't, Isis forbids, open up.
if you have any more questions will be happy to help out.
