I may have missed something in the article but it sounds as though the kitten was traveling in the cargo hold. You pay $2300 for a cat and you don't keep it in the passenger cabin with you? (not in the overhead, as we have found out this week)

Airlines may start wising up and decide that carrying pets of any kind is more trouble than it's worth.

This is a good idea for a specialty market that generate can generate cash from an excentric pet owners market.

It already exists and works quite well. There are pet transport companies that will transport your pet by road, or fly them in chartered aircraft. When the wife and I were moving from Virginia to Alaska that's how our four cats were going to get there.

Keep in mind that many breeders ship via airlines. My Savannah was shipped by plane. Luckily her's was only an hour 1/2 trip, but for some they have to bounce through plane to plane just like we do, except they are being handled by baggage smashers and thrown onto carts.

I had two pedigree cats and the last thing I would want them to do is a a stinky in the cabin. I flew PPL and had the family dog cut cheese admittedly in a 172 but hoo lee chk watering eyes.

in my opinion it is too remote a consequence. Delta can rebut the claim! How about the possibility that the cut might have developed the injury before coming on-board?

You don't need to know contract law to know you should request extra insurance coverage when traveling with valuables that are not in your immediate control.
