    Very easy experience Tom Mar. 30, 2017
    Very easy experience

    Brought my Indian pariah pup home with me to Budapest via Frankfurt from Bangalore, India. Because it was still a very small dog, I took her in cabin. The one thing i would say though is the seats are very low and the small carrier i had did not fit. The height was the problem, not the width. This could have been a very big problem if the plane had been completely full. The staff was very understanding and it was an excellent experience. I will fly Lufthansa again with my dogs. Would put Lufthansa at the top of my list for flying with a dog.
