Travel Advisory

A CWCCA member has reported that an attendee planning to fly to our Nationals via Alaska Airlines, whose website states not flying pets Apr 24-26, required a change of plans The report indicated that no pre-flight advisement will be forthcoming from the airline for others with similar reservations.

Due to privacy concerns, we cannot verify specific information but we strongly urge you to verify your flight arrangements in advance to avoid a travel day upset. We greatly appreciate the heads up.

Thank you!
