    Great

    I moved to Burundi in East Africa for work and I took my dog. I was very very nervous because it was the first time my dog was flying and it was a really long flight (two 9 hour flights with a 4 hour layover). Brussels Airlines was excellent, the airline attendants were very compassionate and accommodating and made sure to double check with ground staff to see if the dog was in the plane. And they made sure to tell me that they adjusted the temperature so that my dog was comfortable. Although, I was not supposed to see my dog in between flights, they gave me special permission to check on her. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take her out of the crate, but she seemed to be doing okay-just a bit nervous. On the way back, I had a similar experience. Overall, they were great and I would fly with then again.
