Hello! I asked about flying with dogs in carriers before—we bought our ticket with delta, but my dog has long legs, so when he lays down he’s fine but when he sits, half his body is out of the carrier (pics attached). A friend who flies with American said they checked to see that her dog could stand and turn around. Does anyone have experience flying with delta/do they do this as well?

I live near Newark (EWR) a United hub and only have a CSR which is a United transfer partner. I travel a few times a year for work internationally (I get to put expenses on my CSR). I’m wondering if I should try to book only Star Alliance airlines so I can have the United Points and Chase Points to transfer or if I should fly SkyTeam and get the Delta points as Delta’s points program is rated higher at the TPG Awards. Also open to other ideas.
