American Airlines Pet Policy

American Airlines allows 7 kennels on American flights, excluding service animals. It is of prime importance to be aware of the airlines’ specific pet policies to understand the requirements and prepare for a safe and comfortable journey for your pet(s).

Pet Criteria

To ensure that, a non collapsible carrier measuring not more than 19 x 13 x 9 inches in dimensions is required. The combined weight of the pet and carrier should not exceed 20 lbs.

Checked Baggage

With American Airlines, up to two pets are allowed to travel as checked baggage if they meet the minimum age and health requirements of the travel destination.

The dimensions of the carrier should not exceed 40 x 27 x 30 inches and the weight of the pet and carrier combined must be within 100 lbs.
