Guess who I'm not flying with any more?

Air Canada will no longer carry pets on passenger flights as of July 15, 2007.

According to their spokesperson, it's about "customer service" - giving non-pet-owning passengers more room for personal baggage.

What Air Canada fails to realize is that pet-owning passengers will choose not to fly their airline, whether or not their pet is flying with them, simply as a matter of principle.

With the exception of one existing prebooked flight, I will definitely be choosing a different airline in the future.

If you choose to do the same, make sure you tell Air Canada why.
