I know there are many great threads on her but we have brachocephalic dogs so it is best to bring them to honolulu with us as carry on instead of cargo. Does anyone know what airlines will allo that that fly from Phoenix to Hawaii?

I am going there next week and have been told that because of Animal quarantine the dogs have to go in cargp because the airlines has to take them directly there and you can not for the quick release program. Here is a link you should check out and if you have not started the process it takes a long time.

We have started the process, although we are gonna fall 4 weeks short of the direct release so our dillema is wether or not to bring them and quarantine them there or keep them in AZ with a friend until we can have them released immediately if they would have to go in cargo either way.

I think ATA was the only airline that allowed pets in the cabin to Honolulu, but they've gone under, so now there's no one. It's not true that the quarantine requires pets go in cargo, but it's much easier for the airlines to require that. (Otherwise, the flight attendants or someone needs to take the pet from you on board directly to quarantine... easier to let the baggage handlers do them all and not risk someone just walking off with their pet and forgoing the quarantine process.)

For brachocephalic dogs, I might look into a dog carrier rather than putting them in cargo. It will cost more, but would be worth it for peace of mind, I think.

Finally, if you have friends or family in AZ with whom the pets feel at home, I would leave them there rather than do the quarantine. I just don't think it's healthy for dogs to be confined to such a small area, have to poop so near where they sleep, etc. That said, I have heard that the staff are really kind to the animals, and you can visit them a lot (if you have the time). So if you don't have someone in AZ who can take them, the quarantine facility isn't too bad. (We didn't use them, but I know lots of folks who have.)
