Soon Delta Won't Let You Check A Pet As Baggage

Delta will no longer allow pets to be checked as baggage starting March 1, 2016, a change that'll make plenty of concerned animal lovers happy. 

That's because flying dogs and cats in cargo holds can be dangerous: The U.S. Department of Transportation reports Delta has highest number of recorded pet deaths between May 2005 and September 2015, according to MarketWatch. Seventy-four pets have died in the decade-long timespan, while 14 have been lost.

That's a small percentage of pets that have flown Delta, but as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals notes, more than 5,000 animals are killed, lost or injured on commercial flights every year according to the Airline Transportation Association. Pets who didn't survive succumbed to lack of oxygen, stress, extreme temperature changes and irresponsible handling. 

Animals small enough to fit in a carrier under their owner's seat can still be carried on board, and Delta will also still allow certain military pets and documented service and emotional support animals to board inside the cabin.
