I moved to Tampa, Florida and had my kitty in a soft cat carrier. She was very good and did not meow at all. I put her right under my seat for three hours and she slept. I unzipped the top a few times to pet her and comfort her. Everyone who noticed her told her she was beautiful! One thing that is bad is the $80.00 pet fee, but she is worth it! Do not forget that most airports also require the carrier to be checked. I had to take mine in a small room for them to do that.
