This post is part of an recording under-seat measurements of the various planes we fly on. Keep in mind that most domestic and international airlines have rules about the maximum size of in-cabin pet carriers they allow on board (see Dog Jaunt’s handy charts under the “Taking your pet on a plane” tab above).
In Cabin Pet Travel: contact the reservation department of the airline and notify them that you are flying with a pet. Most airlines allow only a limited number of pets in the cabin so make your reservations early. Ask the airlines the dimension under the seat in front of you on the plane that services your route so you know what space your have to work with. If you do not have a flexible , you need to get one. The airlines will require that your pet can stand up and turn around in the carrier. Do not stuff your pet into a carrier that is too small. Neither one of you will get on the plane.

The Under Seat Pet Carrier is a small pet carrier designed to allow your pet to sit under the airline seat in front of you, making it perfect for toy dogs or cats. The wire top provides good air flow and excellent visibility so you can easily check on your pet. Although this pet carrier is approved for airline use, we recommend checking with your airline's specific requirements to ensure this pet carrier is suitable. Pets traveling in cabin/carry-on must be transported in soft-sided or hard-sided pet travel carriers that are leak proof and ventilated on at least two sides. The carrier must be large enough for your pet to stand up, turn around and lie down comfortably. The pet carrier must fit under the seat in front of you. The under-seat dimensions are as follows: window seat - 19" L x 14" W x 8.25" H; middle seat - 19" L x 19" W x 8.25" H; aisle seat - 19" L x 14" W x 8.25" H. Southwest Airlines allows only one pet carrier per ticketed Passenger. The carrier may contain two (2) cats or dogs and must be of the same species per carrier. Pets must be secured in the pet carrier at all times while in the gate area, during boarding/deplaning, and they must remain in the carrier for the entire duration of the flight. Failure to follow this requirement may result in denial of transportation of the pet onboard Southwest Airlines.
Worrying about buying a cat carrier or a dog carrier that will not fit under a plane seat is a thing of the past. Sleepypod's folding system allows pets to travel in the largest space possible while the airplane is in the air, yet still allows for stowage under an airline seat. When the captain says you can recline your seat, rotate the Sleepypod Air so it is between your feet and then expand the ends so both you and your little friend can stretch out comfortably for the duration of the flight. In-cabin pet travel has never been so comfortable. Some airlines allow passengers to carry their pets in the cabin of a plane if your pet is capable of fitting in an airline-compliant under the seat in front of you. Carry-on pets are not regulated under the Animal Welfare Act; however, the airlines will require that your pet be able to stand up and turn around in the carrier. For animals other than dogs or cats, contact the airline for their acceptance policy. You can also send us an email at or post an inquiry on our .
