Service Animals while traveling with medical conditions.
Most airlines allow small dogs and cats to travel in the cabin as carry-on pets. The pet must be able to fit in a carrier that fits under the seat in front of you. Some airlines also allow other small pets, such as rabbits, hamsters, and birds, to travel in the cabin.
Service animals are allowed to accompany travelers with disabilities in the TSA security checkpoint and on airplanes. Service animals must be well-behaved and under the control of their handler at all times.
