... I'm going to California to visit my fiance this Halloween. One of the betta fish (as long as he says he can still take care of one) I actually want to give
to him. Sort of half a late 3-year-anniversary gift. Anyway...
I've searched around my airline's website and I didn't exactly find much on it...
Basically, I want to take a betta fish on the plane with me.
I have sort of a plan... take the fish in a bottle that's the maximum... uh... ounces of liquid I can take. If they let me go through with it, I run through security (not literally, lol) and go buy a water bottle at the store thing they have there. I've got a tiny bottle of water conditioner... use that for the water bottle's water, go to the bathroom so no one looks at me weid when I stick him in the bigger bottle (as long as the temp is about the same), and yay from there.
If they don't let him go through... not with water... I try to literally run through security as fast as I can, holding him in a damp paper towel, quickly buy a new water bottle and put conditioner in and stick him in so he doesn't die. D:
I'm going to call the airline and ask, but...
Here's my weird question.
Has anyone traveled with their betta like this before? I managed to do checked baggage with Northern Lights, she made it fine. (Only an hour flight.) This being from FL to CA... it's a much longer flight and I'd rather know how badly the betta's getting thrown around, 'cause it'd be me holding him. :V
And do you think I can pull this off? >>
Edit: I don't fly there until the 27th of October. I don't want him to sit in the cold checked baggage... but then again, I don't know how cold it gets where he is in Cali. (Near Los A)
