If you have ever taken an animal on a plane

Can I see a picture (either stock or otherwise) of the carrier you used. Reading the rules about the carrier seems very confusing to me and I can't even wrap my head around it.

ETA

Thanks everyone for the pics and suggestions. I went back to the airlines web page and found a less confusing page that explained the rules better. It seems I was reading the rules for pets flying in the cargo hold. :)

I'll buy a soft carrier for him.

I'm on my phone so I can't get a pic. But it's the hard sided plastic ones if they go under the plane and soft sided for in the plane. If you look they usually say " safe for air travel" soon where in the label.

I found a bunch online that say they are for air travel, but when I look up the rules for the plane they conflict. Like how the carrier has to be big enough for the animal to stand or lay down without it touching the sides or top? Or some weird thing about being able to give your animal water or food without opening the carrier.

How big is your pet?

He's just a cat. Only 7 months old. He's the size of a regular cat.

I have a beagle, he's about forty lbs. He went under the plane. I used a hard sided plastic Create that you would think would've a good size for a standard sized lab. I got bowls that hung on the door of the crate so some one could give him water if need be with out opening the door. I also put in a big blanket because I heard it could get chilly down there. That being said, being under the plane isn't the best option, try not to if you don't have to :-)
