It seems like more and more places are becoming pet friendly.
Airlines are no different!
Especially in the days of the internet, where one bad review can go viral, airlines have def been stepping up the pet accommodations.
Virgin Australia is taking things a step further and is now offering frequent flyer points for pets!!
That's right! If someone is a Virgin Australia Velocity member, they can start racking up points for the pooch!
A vet, speaking on how pets are becoming more prevalent in our everyday lives, said:
"Our pets are having a bigger role to play in our lives so it's probably further recognition of that. More and more we see them as being fully-fledged family members as opposed to the dog or the cat that used to just hang out in the backyard and we'd feed it table scraps."
With a many as 30,000 pets traveling domestically with Virgin Australia each year, the pet points make so much sense!
We wonder if Virgin is going to roll out that program across the whole world…
We want Teddy to be able to rack up points! He likes to go on vacations as much as we do!
C'mon, Virgin, let's bring pet frequent flyer points to everyone!!
