I've been searching and don't find anything that falls into the category I'm wondering about. Is there anyone here that has the personal experience of taking their BIG bird on a jet? I want to take my BIG bird in the cabin with me. I haven't looked into an airline as of yet. Having traveled with my dog years ago I know I would need a current health certificate and a carrier that protects the bird and the travelers.

The carrier sizes for airlines are very small. I'm not sure if I could get Birt (U2) into one and I'm pretty sure the tail on a macaw would be too long. You can go to the airline websites and check their link on traveling with pets (usually under special travel needs) and it will give you the dimensions they'll allow for a kennel in the cabin.

Commerical airlines require that in-cabin, the carriers fit under the seat in front of you. The clearance isn't usually more than 8-12 inches. You'll have to call each airline and verify. They will need to know exactly what flight you are booking so that they can give you the under the seat dimensions for the particular aircraft. Also, most normally allow on a limited number of in-cabin pets.
