Holiday travel update: pets, air travel and pat downs

A few of you have asked about current travel conditions, with increased airport security and all. And I'm happy to report we didn't have any difficulties at the airport yesterday.
Cosmo here, that's me in the bag!
We checked in as usual at Delta's counter for pet check-in at the Atlanta airport. Cosmo travels in his bag in cabin with me, but you still have to reserve your pet space on the plane and check in at ticketing.

Security also was same as usual. Did they give Cosmo a pat down? The answer is NO! I took him out of his carrier and carried him through security.  The ONLY difference was when we got our bags on the other side of the security x-ray machine, I was asked to put Cosmo back in his carrier right there. I wasn't allowed to carry him to a nearby table, but this was no big deal.
I'm cozy in my carrier under the seat

The flight was uneventful.

Approaching Chicago along Lake Michigan
on the north side of the city.

It was a beautiful day for flying. 
I'm ready to hop in a cab and head to Grandma's!
We arrived in Chicago without any issues at all. There's still the chance for a random body scan or pat down, but for us it was travel as usual

My big green bone goes EVERYWHERE with me!
Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
