I hate to say this - but if the airlines jack up their prices some more, or if the crate prices go up or my vet starts charging more - I will have to adjust the shipping prices, as right now I am eating $20-30+ on each pup that gets shipped plus spend anywhere from 5-6 hours on the road - vet trip, airport delivery, waiting times on both locations.
For me - as I need about 2 hrs to drive there - that means my shipping day starts at 2:30-2:45 AM!!!
As it is rather early in the day after I drop off the pup, I usually text your cell phone to let you know that it has been dropped off as scheduled, or to update you on any potential flight or weather delays. Be sure to check with Delta before you leave for the pick-up, to make sure the plane is still on time and there haven't been any delays for whatever reason. Also confirm with your airway bill number that your puppy is actually present and loaded on the flight, especially if you have a long drive in to get there to pick up. On occasions a pup catches an earlier connection flight in Atlanta [if there was a cancellation or unexpected opening], so every once in a while a puppy arrives a bit sooner than planned for - another good reason to check in with Delta!
Call Delta @ 1-800-352-2746 for confirmation and updates. Or check them out at https://www.deltacargo.com/
I am usually back home again around 8ish and then my normal day with
the dogs starts [although I like to squeeze a cat nap in the
afternoon, if I can].
