All-Pet Airline Having Big Success

I have friends who are flying across the country to take a temporary job for a couple months. They have a date they need to be there so don't have time to drive. They own a cat they would love to take with them, but after checking into the cost and requirements of taking Fluffy on a plane with them, decided it might be cheaper and easier to board Fluffy for a couple months, despite reservations about leaving their beloved pet with strangers.

A new airline may be the answer, although they don't fly in our area yet. Pet Airways, the first-ever all-pet airline, says business is brisk and pretty much all their flights are booked out two months in advance. Here's a story on this new kind of airline, from Yahoo News.
