Pets Guaranteed On Board

The Sherpa Pet Group launched the first-ever Guaranteed On Board™ pet travel program (http://www.flygob.com/) and new American Airlines pet travel carriers. Consumers who purchase one of the three new American Airlines-branded pet carriers are guaranteed to board U.S. domestic American Airlines flights with their pets as long as they fill out the Guaranteed On Board form accurately and comply with the terms of the form. If a consumer is denied boarding, the Sherpa Pet Group will refund the price of both the customer and pet airline ticket.

Once a traveler has purchased a new American Airlines pet travel carrier, customers simply visit the Sherpa Web site (http://www.flygob.com/) and complete and print the easy-to-understand Guaranteed On Board certificate. As long as travelers meet the stated requirements, they are guaranteed on board any American Airlines flight. The form follows the flight requirements for the airline, helps the traveler better understand the American Airlines guidelines, and provides basic information to help make traveling with their pet safer and more enjoyable.

The new American Airlines travel carriers are available at PETCO. As the official retail partner for Guaranteed On Board™, new pet carriers and Guaranteed On Board™ program was introduced at a special promotional event at the Union Square PETCO store in New York City at 860 Broadway Avenue.
To celebrate, the Sherpa Pet Group, American Airlines, Kimpton Hotel Group, as well as the American Kennel Club and Cat Fanciers Association, hosted an exciting promotion, “Packed and Ready.” Two travel packages included roundtrip, domestic Economy airfare, hotel and other prizes were awarded at the event. Winners were packed and ready to begin their trip as soon as they are selected because limousines will be waiting to take them on their journey. Winners Lauren Burniac & Olive and their guest Noel Trejo went to San Francisco. Christine Traina & Shuga Pi and their guest Roberta Panos went to Miami.
Patterned in American’s signature red and blue, the new American Airlines pet carriers are available in three approved sizes for the Guaranteed on Board™ program: a medium-sized classic Sherpa Original Bag, and a small and medium-sized Sherpa Sport style carrier. The American Airlines pet travel carriers are available for $60 at select PETCO locations and online at http://www.petco.com/.
