I am going home to Michigan for the holidays and I needed to do something with kitty (see picture on left) and thought I might have to board him. But, good news! It's only $80 for me to fly him a pet on Northwest. That price is for any cat, dog or bird (sorry no ferrets or reptiles) that can fit in a carrier under the seat. And they even suggest taking him for a quick "walk" before he gets on the plane. I'm visualizing a cat on a leash walking around in Terminal A - not weird at all.
