Would you please write an in depth article on travelling by airplane with your birds? While your experiences are in a private airplane and you have written on this subject, a training and safety article for general purposes along with some research and feedback provided by some of your expert friends would be appreciated.
I have done my own extensive research into the subject and feel that when the time comes I am prepared. At this point the biggest unknown concern that I am unable to test (to my knowledge) in advance will be if my birds can handle a long commercial jet ride at high altitudes in the pressurized cabin (will they be ok breathing, basically). They have had car rides over an hour long in their carrier and been chipper about the adventure, but that does not compare to being in a carrier for 12 hours from trip start to end point.
My personal interest is that I have been interviewing for positions on the west coast (I live nearish to the east coast). As such, if I wind up having to move across the country, I am looking at taking 2 green cheeks and a canary on a 9 hour airplane ride with one connection switch in between (direct flights are not available). However, I read here and elsewhere about people who have to move short and long distances and a central discussion instigated by an article from you would be welcome. When it comes to the safety and health of my birds I like to be as prepared as possible.
