So I have my reservations for a flight into Estonia...but I don't have the ticket yet.
As far as I knew, Scandinavian Airlines was the only airline flying to Tallinn that allowed birds. So I go to the travel office and tell them this is they flight I need.
Of course there is.
Scandinavian has no government fare. The flight they recommend is United via Amsterdam. It costs about $1600 less. $1600 the government *might* want me to cover.
Sigh...that is less than using a pet shipping company...
Anyway, I had them make the reservations but not buy the ticket while I went to check with United on their bird policy.
According to the website, she can fly in cabin. Big score...it means only having to have Cayenne in cargo for the Amsterdam to Tallinn leg of the trip.
But first I should verify that with a human being...because you know how these things go, right.
So maybe by tomorrow, I will have paid tickets. And just hope nothing changes.
Seriously...she is a bird...maybe I should just make her fly there on her own!
