anyone have any experience with this route?

Southwest doesn't allow even small dogs in the cabin.

I was sitting behind a guy and his small dog on a recent flight from Houston to NOLA, and it was Southwest. Did it say this on their website, or did someone tell you? I cant tell you from personal experience since I dont have a dog, but I know what I saw in the seat in front. Cute.

Delta has a 1-stop flight, LA, or maybe OC, to Salt Lake City, then non-stop to New Orleans. It soemetimes is a full-sized plane but more frequently one of the regional jets operated by SkyWest. I've flown this a lot and never seen a dog in cabin but then, I wasn't looking, either. Call and ask.

According to their website, SW allow small cats and dogs, as long as you travel with them, and they're vaccinated.

Hope this helps.

Speaking of Southwest, the flight I was about to book went from $75 to $125 each way literally overnight (PHL-MSY). Talk about being pissed. So now I'm taking a drive to Baltimore, meet up with a buddy for a beer, then take AirTran for $160 total.

That price hike is bad. I hope it doesnt happen too often. Hopefully the price will decrease again maybe.
Ive only had 4 flights with SW, one with Delta. SW were fine for the price and their inflight catalog was....entertaining to say the least. (Some of those products you have to see to believe).

One thing that helped a lot was to pay an extra $10 for early bird check-in online. You can do that months in advance I think. It ensured we were in the 'A' boarding group, with better seat choice and more overhead luggage room. The only time it was wasted was when our connecting flight was delayed. By the time we boarded for the second flight, both my partner and I had to sit in middle seats, separated from each other. That was fine, 'cept for the roller coaster ride the first few minutes as we climbed through a storm.

Bottom line, I'd fly SW to N.O again.

thanks for that tip. too bad they charge for online check in. I know some airlines don't but ten bucks sounds quite worth it in most instances.

I do love those inflight catalogs- what a hoot.

Read an article about a guy who collected barf bags from lots of airlines- interesting hobby I suppose.

Now back to planning a road trip too. woo.

The $10 was for early-bird check-in. You could probably still do a 'normal' online check-in free of charge. But it really was worth it, given they don't allocate seats. One time, I snagged the seat without a seat in front. That extra leg room made up for the flight where I had to sit in the middle seat. At 5'10 you appreciate every extra inch. I don't know how really tall people cope.

Road trip! Yeah!
