Fido, Fifi & FYI

One can't fly with pets on Alaska because the cargo holds on the Airbus aren't pressurized. No idea what type of aircraft are being used by other carriers.

That's the job of the local tourism authorities: to make sure the people who want to come here can get here easily and affordably. They've been shirking their duties for years and it shows, taking care of filling up Ixtapa's big hotels and practically NOTHING ELSE. Unfortunately too many of the businesses who came here from other places to suckle off the Zihuatanejo cash cow simply move on to somewhere else when times get tough instead of calling on the local government to do its job, while locals still haven't found their own legs to seriously call into question anything the local or state government does. They're just happy to get any attention at all from them after so many years of being ignored.

My other major complaint with local and state tourism authorities is their total ignorance of the rest of the USA. Most of the USA's money is in the east, where Cancún, the Bahamas and the Caribbean get their tourists from, but no one here even considers the east. So while the west crashes and burns, we continue missing out on a market ripe for the picking.

Personally I've never flown Alaska, and if I wanted to travel with my pet I wouldn't let their lack of service stop me. There are other airlines.
