I just completed a 5 flight, 53 hr trip with my dog from Central Alaska to Zihua. The difficulty of the trip was more impacted by AK Air's decision to saturate their west coast routes with Airbus jets they acquired from Virgin Air rather than virus considerations. My comments on the 5 flights and 6 airports we traveled are not scientific and are meant to be helpful to those considering traveling.

AS 156 FAI to SEA 70% full no temp testing prior to boarding
AS 444 SEA t0 LAX 80% full no testing, airport very busy like pre virus
AS 290 LA to Guadalajara 80% full no testing prior to boarding

Airport in Guadalajara busy but not crowded. more precautions here than in LA. Overnighted at Hotel Posada Margaritas in Tlaquepsque, Jalisco, a nice quiet spot to walk in shaded areas and plazas with lots of steet art

GDl TO mx cITY brought more testin a each step

More to come but Alaska Air does not need a another federai bqilout

Gracias I need to learn to spell check, got interrupted before I could finish.

My last flight of 5 floghts on AeroMexico Connect from MX City to Zihua flight 2454 I believe, is one I would try to avoid. I bid on 1st class 2 days prior to departure at less than market rate , but the seats in 1st were no more than 1.5-2meters apart in the smaller Emracer jet they used.

Ahorita es todo bien!

Welcome home, John. We hope you find both places all to be in order. I wish I could say "See you soon!", but not likely. Enjoy it for us! Ed & Nedra

Gracias Nedra and Ed. My young fruit trees have grown so much its incredible. Everything is pretty much good. I hope you will consider returning this year? If you get a non stop to Mex City it will not be bad. Things are pretty much under control at the Mex City airport.

Thanks for the travel update . I share your frustration with Alaska and their current lack of cargo pet policy . I was the lady with the Golden Retriever on the Alaska flight where they left our pups on board . I think we are going to try Southwest to San Diego , overnight with son then try Volarís in Tijuana non stop to Zihuatanejo with our pup .

Ah yes I remember.No matter what airline you have to be vigilant. On my last flight Aeromexico had my pup out on the tarmac in MX City for about 30 minutes. The people handing the baggage. a tough and thankless job, either have no training or direction from supervisors how to care for pets.
