  1. Hiya was wondering if anybody has had any success in flying their dog by contacting the cargo department of any airlines directly and bypassing any agent. I know that BA world cargo will not deal with the general public and will only use agents on their behalf, however I was wondering if anybody has managed to do it with any other airline? Sarah

    Experience in Cargo

    hi everyone...i am tooo apprehensive about all this....what has your experience been taking your pet in cargo or any info you have?? I am just so scared as she has to fly from heathrow to sydney and she is a "fragile" persian, however, have no good home for her. Please help my nerves here and tell me your experiences:hug:
  3. Hi guys, we leave on the 23rd September for Sydney and looking to possibly add a box to the same flight as us and have it checked through as extra baggage or cargo, we are flying cathy pacific , any help or suggestions would be much appreciated,. Thanks Chris
  4. :wacko: Hi everyone! We are soooo confused, stressed etc... My kids and I are planning to join my brother in Sydeny in 8-10 weeks. Have been planning and selling for nearly 2 years and have decided to bite the bullet and rent my house and just go! sooo excited! Heres the possible problems: 1: Can I take my dogs on a tourist visa? (till I find a teaching job) either a three month or six month visa. 2: I have found a n airline which, so long as my dogs and crate are not over 32kg, will allow them to travel as backage in cargo (?)/luggage area for free!!! plus 70 GBP as they are 2kg over 30kg total weight. (Any more than 32kg they would need to go via emirates sky-cargo) This is where the problem lies, as AQIS state that they have to travel in Cargo, not in passenger (?), does that mean they can travel in cargo on the same plane as us?? or they cannot travel in same plane, and need to go on a specific cargo based flight? so bl@@dy confused!! :confused: Secondly, AQIs say they can travel via Dubia, so long as they don't trans-ship, however, the flight is direct, but changing planes in Dubai from UK, less than three hour turnaround. they dont touch dubai ground, but do transfer??? Cannot seem to find much info from AQIs on these two matters, head is FRIEDDDD ! :arghh: PLEASEEEE HELPPPP!! I am traveling with twin sister (yes twins by definition!!) labradors, one weigh 26kg the other 27kg , choc n black! 1 yr old munchkins thanks Crazyfox xxx
  5. Bit of a random question this, but when we move to Australia next year (175 permenant resident) we are trying to do the whole trip overland without flying. For the last part of this journey we will be going on a container ship (as a paying passenger) from Jakarta to Perth. Does anybody know if this will cause a problem with validating our visa? How does it work if we do not arrive into an airport? Would we need to go a visa office in Perth on arrival?
