Pets Checked On AA*/JL flights


Please see SSR requirements that JL has advised are necessary when requesting AVIH (Checked Pet) on any AA*/JL flights. JL has had several incidents reported recently regarding travel agency bookings where the SSR AVIH requests have minimal information (i.e., only the size of the cage and does not include the 'NOT BULLDOG' info). Without having ALL the below information when requesting AVIH on AA*/JL flights, JL will not accommodate the passengers checked pet.

  • Request using SSR AVIH in PNR. Include in free text the following information:
    • Type of pet
    • The words "NOT BULLDOG" are MANDATORY (JL will not accept bull dogs)
    • Age of pet
    • Dimensions of the cage
    • Weight of pet and kennel combined
    • Age of the pet - Pets younger than 8 weeks old will not be accepted
    • Input AQ PSGR RISK OK
      • Advise passenger to confirm animal quarantine with the embassy or country they are traveling to. AQ stands for "Animal Quarantine"

See example:
SSR AVIH JL NN1 NRTHNL0074Y23JUL-1DONLEY/TABATHA.1DOG/NOT BULLDOG

  • SSR AVIH JL /// 9YRS DOM
  • SSR AVIH JL /// 20LX12WX12H TTL WGT 14LBS
  • SSR AVIH JL /// AQ PSGR RISK OK

Note: The formats described are for use in Sabre. Users of other GDSs should contact the respective GDS for the correct format.
