I'm flying with my cat as excess luggage. Luftansa says the crate needs to be 60cm L x 45cm W x 40cm H but all the crates I can find online are 41cm in height. I don't want them to deny entry to my pet on the flight at the airport, just because his crate is a cm taller than their specifications.

  • "I'm flying with my cat as excess luggage" HEH that's a great sentence :)

  • My gut instinct is you'd be fine. Those crates are expensive, you don't want to buy another one. Perhaps phone Lufthansa - I'm pretty sure it's fine. it's not an "exact" measurement (they do not have to, for example, 'squeeze them in' to some device or holder - they just don't want you to bring a huge one). Phone them!

  • @Dorothy: As far as I can tell, this question is asking about pet crate dimensions for pets traveling as cargo, while the question you identified is about pets traveling in the passenger cabin. See Lufthansa's requirements here; from the dimensions given, the OP appears to be asking about a "medium" animal to be transported in the cargo hold. Jun 21 '17 at 18:22
  • This is quite obviously not a duplicate of that, unless Lufthansa loads passengers in the cargo hold, that is. That said, we need an additional closing reason for "Why don't you just ask them? It's free."
