Alternative Transportation Methods
1. Try traveling across the ocean from the U.S. to Europe (and Europe to U.S.) by
the Queen Mary II..
Pets are not allowed in the cabin with you. They are required to stay
in a limited number of kennels that can hold up to about a mid-size
dog. You can visit with your dog once or twice a day. Click here
for more information.
2. Charter a plane from the U.S. to Europe or within the United States.
The cost can start at $50K and up (one-way). After finding a charter,
you will need to verify that they will allow your dog on their
airplane. Most charters will.
3. Find an "empty leg" on an already chartered airplane. The empty leg
is when the original trip is booked as a one-way flight. The return trip or "backhaul"
must then return to base. Some charter companies allow the empty leg to be priced
less than if you were to charter your own airplane (up to a 50% reduced rate).
