Flight is from JFK NYC to Bucharest OTP (Layover in SVO, Russia).
First leg is Aeroflot, second is Aeroflot--operated by Tarom.
Has anyone flown this route before? And has anyone flown with their pet?
I have a small dog who will be in cabin with me (hopefully).
How much is the cost on each flight usually?
Do these airlines easily accept the small dogs in a soft carrier?
Do these airlines measure each bag?
Any special paper work a US citizen needs for their layover (5 hours max) in SVO with their dog?
I saw that the airlines want an EU pet passport, but I am a US citizen. Does this mean I don't need one?
I know I need microchip, rabies vaccine, and health certificate USDA endorsed. Am I missing anything? Translations?
My goal is to get my dog on safely to these flights and without fuss. I want all paper work ready and I want the right kind of carrier. I do not want my dog to be shipped back to the USA or put to sleep or quarantined.
