Sound like a crazy question, however one that Lufthansa Airlines are going to do for your pet if you use their aircraft.

Yes, this incredible news comes directly from Lufthansa in the form of the following quote,
Our colleagues in FRA for now are insisting on a MIN charge 1 CUB M (167 kg) for all cages up to 80 x 55 x 55 cm. And 2 cub M for all larger cages.”

For those of you who are unsure what this means, the size shown in the Lufthansa example above 80 x 55 x55 cms is equal to 40 kilos NOT 167 kilos, this means you have to pay four times more with Lufthansa than any other airline.

If you are the owner of a medium size dog such as a lab, this could mean Lufthansa will expect you to pay them on a chargeable weight of 333 kilos which is equal to 2 cubic meters.

We suggest you think very hard before you book your family pet with an airline that wants to add weight to YOUR pet.

We work with various airlines to find the best solutions, based on safety and costs, please contact us for more details.
