When it comes to traveling on an airline with a pet, “be friends with the purser,” says international burlesque star Dita von Teese, who talked pet travel with The Jet Set Pets. The sultry entertainer is known to bring her cat Aleister on trips.
“He has a Louis Vuitton carrier, which I had painted with my monogram,” Dita von Teese says. “He’s really smart and can unzip it. I have to watch him carefully. One time he popped out on the plane.”
But by befriending the purser, she’s been able to cuddle with Aleister on lie-flat beds on long journeys. Aleister, who is around seven years old, has even flown on a private plane. Naturally, the fine feline loved that experience.
