If your crate does not meet airline requirements, than you should invest in a new pet kennel. We like Petmate pet crates. They have been making reliable crates for pet shipping for a long time and are approved by all airlines. We also recommend using a travel pad to keep your dog or cat dry if they do urinate or spill water in the cage. makes a good travel pad.

Some airlines allow small pets in the cabin of the plane, if they're in a carry-on kennel or approved carrier that fits under a passenger seat; standard carry-on baggage restrictions must be followed. Usually, these flights need to be less than six hours. Animals other than dogs or cats may not be allowed--airlines have very specific regulations--and odor or noise disturbance can get a pet and passenger removed from the plane before take-off. Pets must remain in their carrying case for the duration of the flight. Most airlines allow one pet per passenger and two pets per cabin, though American Airlines allows two per passenger and seven per flight, so again, be sure to check individual rules. The maximum size for cabin pet carriers on American Airlines is 19 inches long by 13 inches wide and 9 inches high. Soft-sided pet carriers made of water-repellent, padded nylon with mesh ventilation on two or more sides may exceed size limits slightly because they are collapsible, but animals must still be able to stand up, turn around and lie down naturally. Pet kennels are counted as a passenger's carry-on bag or personal item, and a cabin pet charge is added the cost of the plane ticket.For added security, the front door securely latches with a chrome squeeze door latch. Previous customers have said they were surprised at how well the latch works, and how sturdy it is. If you’ve had a pet kennel before, you know that the latches on the doors aren’t always well made. You can be sure that your pet will be safe, as no airline would ever approve a kennel that is not capable of keeping a pet securely inside the crate.Pets can travel in the cargo hold with the checked baggage, but only if the passenger is traveling on the same flight. Airlines can only allow carriers that follow APHIS regulations, which state that the kennel must be sturdy, properly ventilated and large enough for your pet to freely be able to stand, turn around and lie down. The kennel must also have a latch that closes securely and requires no special tools to open, as well as built-in spacers that ensure the kennel’s ventilation cannot be blocked by other cargo. Appropriate kennels are available at pet stores and from most airlines, but remember to check individual airline policies, which can vary significantly. Carriers in checked baggage must be labeled with the words "Live Animals," the passenger's name and address and with arrows or other marking to indicate the top of the kennel. Some airlines require passengers to display a food and water schedule (if any food is necessary), include an adequate supply in a bag attached to the outside of the carrier and leave two dishes (both empty) inside the kennel that are accessible from outside.The American Veterinary Medical Association outlines the standard specifications that apply to airline-compliant crates for pets. Crates must be large enough for animals to stand up, turn around and lie down comfortably. Approved crates will also be made of sturdy plastic with leak-proof bottoms. No wheels are permitted on crates. The crate needs to have ventilation holes on all four sides, and the door must feature a secure locking system that can only by opened from the outside. Additionally, the crate has to have food and water bowls attached to the inside of the door with a space that allows airline personnel to refill the dishes without opening the kennel. Finally, the crate needs to be labeled with the owner's name, itinerary and contact information as well as a "Live Animals" sticker and a set of arrows showing which way is upright for the kennel.
