    * Checked as baggage in pressurized and temperature controlled area of your aircraft.
    * Shipped as cargo in pressurized and temperature controlled area.
    Does my pet qualify for travel in the passenger cabin?
    Pets that meet the following qualifications can travel in the passenger cabin:
    * Only domesticated dogs, cats, and birds are allowed.
Chicken = domesticated bird. But maybe they mean budgies etc ;)

“No one should travel who does not desire hardship, trouble, tribulation and risk of death.”

"All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time." – Paul Fussell

"A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it." – John Steinbeck
