This Airline BROKE Its Rule About PETS For A VERY Important Reason.
Canadian airlines are not known for bending the rules but they made an exception this time. As the wildfires of Fort McMurray in Alberta, forced its 80,000 residents to evacuate, many didn’t have the opportunity to take their family pets with them.
Airlines like Air Canada, Canadian North, West Jet, among others have stepped up and offered to take cats and dogs out of the city with their humans.
