That is inaccurate They DO allow dogs in the cargo area if the combined pet/crate weight do not exceed 100 lbs I just looked at their website (today is 8/10/2011)

Just made a reservation. The price to bring pet on board has increased to $125.00 payable at time of reservation. If pet ends up not traveling with you after all, they will give you a travel voucher for $!00.
