Most airlines will allow you to take a cat or small dog in the cabin for an additional fee. But you must call the airline well in advance; there are limits to the number of animals allowed in the cabin. If you are transporting your dog, make sure they meet the size requirements.

Unfortunately, no UK airline allows pets to fly in the cabin (at least any airline that flies in and out of commercial airports). The only animals that are permitted to fly in the cabin are registered assistance dogs… No pets are permitted to fly in the cabin on any flight into the UK, or even as checked baggage.

Federal regulations allow a legitimate emotional support animal, whether it be a dog, a cat, a pot-bellied pig or even a miniature horse in one case, to travel on airplanes in the cabin with the owner, outside of a carrier, and for free if the owner has proper documentation, which means a letter from a doctor or other
