Are there any airlines left that fly into Bangkok from the USA?  Delta stopped its Tokyo to Bangkok fights and now use partner airlines. I am not as familiar with other airlines.  I have a friend that has a dog that needs to ride up top in the cabin.  However, many airlines do not allow this. But, all US airlines will.  Any suggestions?

I'm pretty sure there are no nonstop flights from USA. I could be wrong though.

It is OK if they are not non-stop. I am looking for airlines that stop but then continue with the same carrier and not a partner airline. The reason is most airlines outside of USA do not let dogs in the cabin.

I assume the dog is small, if so maybe this will help.

There are no US carriers with direct service to BKK although most offer code-share flights with one or two stops.

 

There's many non-US carriers with direct service with one or two stops.

When Delta stopped flying to BKK via NRT last October it meant there was no US carrier serving BKK. United, which also used to service BKK via NRT, ceased their flight a few years back.

As mentioned all three major US Carriers have code share agreements, but would require a segment flown on a non US Carrier, JAL, ANA, KE, TG, China Eastern/Southern depending on which alliance selected.

Good luck.

If dogs are permitted in the cabin I hope they are given a strong tranquilliser first. Screaming kids are bad enough, but a yelping small dog would drive many passengers crazy on a transPacific flight. Even with a muzzle they can make annoying moans.

I've got to agree with PeterRS. Much as I like dogs, I wouldn't enjoy having even more yapping, smelly fellow travelers. The occasional human who falls into that category really is bad enough.

I guess there are no Gay Dogs or owners on this Forum.

Alex and Peter,

 

I had a young twink who once said that old men should be muzzled when they go into gay bars so they don't drool on themselves. :) 

 

I have no problem with dogs and in fact, I took my 3 babies with me on about 10 flights from USA to Thailand back when Northwest owned the skies.  They were great companions and I loved them a great deal.  I hope my friend can carry his dog on his trip as he means more to him that most people will ever know.

Dogs in the cabin ?   (string of expletives here).

 

I hope to never see, hear or smell that in the cabin of any aircraft I fly on.    Having obnoxious children is bad enough.

Possibly you should win the Lottery and then you will be able to dictate who flies with you on your Private Jet.

Frankly if it came down to a quiet small dog or a screaming Baby. I'll take the dog.

I expect to fly on a passenger plane, not a cattle truck.   If they allow dogs, will there be sheep & cattle next ?

 

I would assume this is an April fool's topic, but it was posted on 02 April.

 

It must be said, acquiring enough money to take a private jet is an appealing option :).   I just have a few difficulties with the execution of that plan.

Not sure why you would think it was an April Fools Joke. Two links I posted showed many airlines that will allow small pets to ride with the passenger and I have had many passengers with cats but I have not seen dogs but many airlines are completely willing under prescribed circumstances.

When I have flown with my dogs, their behavior was impeccable. People, on the other hand, could learn a lot from them.

The present quarantine regulations give a quarantine officer the right to detain a pet at the airport quarantine station for up to a month. This from one embassy website

 

The animals are subjected to quarantine at approved premises for a period of at least 30 (thirty) days upon arrival during which they shall be submitted to tests and/or treatments deemed necessary. The importer/owner shall be fully charged for the incurred expenses.
