Southwest to allow small pets in the cabin for $75

June 3, 2009

Southwest previously did not allow animals in the cabin unless they were there for medical reasons — but times are tough, so the airline that doesn’t charge for bags is looking for ways to add revenue without annoying customers.

Starting June 17, you’ll be able to bring Rosy and Ginger for a mere $75 a piece, which is cheaper than the industry standard. Southwest says that they’ll be a maximum of 5 pets per plane, and that they plan on outfitting their terminals with places where animals can relieve themselves.

From Chicago Tribune:

Southwest is the only major carrier that doesn’t charge passengers to check two pieces of luggage, a policy the carrier maintains would alienate loyal customers. Its fees kick in for passengers who check three or more bags.

Southwest CEO Gary Kelly told investors last week that Southwest was looking at new ways to generate generate income without angering customers. In addition to the new pet service, Southwest said it starts to charge a $25, each way, service charge for children aged five through 11 who aren”t traveling with an adult.
