I've read past threads about transporting pets and they've put my mind at easy that Lola will survive the 20+ hour plane ride from the US to South Africa, even if she's not thrilled with me afterwards. Of course, I still want it to be as easy and non-traumatic as possible. There are a few different options and I'm having a hard time finding information on which would be best for our collective mental health. [more inside]

What happens if you sit in the first class cabin with a coach class ticket? I got on a plane a couple of days ago, near the end of the line. First class passengers had already boarded. A nervous, but respectably dressed man in front of me sat down in a spare, first class seat. I don't know if he had a first-class ticket or not - if he was lying, what risk was he running? Does anyone, for example, check first class tickets after boarding?
