For those of you you travel with your pet, listen up. Delta has announced that starting March 1st 2016 they will no longer accept pets as checked baggage. This will not affect your plans if your pup flies with you in a crate under your seat, but if Fido needs to be checked in a lot has changed. First, they will have to be booked separately as air cargo. They may be on a different plane than you and you will have to arrive 3 hours prior to their departure time.
