Sorry someones cat should never ever have higher priority over a person. If im booking a flight for work Im not going to travel later and miss meetings or if travelling for leisure shorten my vacation because of a cat that shouldnt be on board.So long as you have med cert to say you are cat allergic, the airline could easily make arrangements either for you or the cat.
Airlines have separated the allergic passenger and animal as far as possible within the cabin, limited the number of animals within the cabin, booked allergic passenger on later flights or arranged for the animal to go freight. There are options and its nothing new.
While I hope we never get to the stage of having cats and rats and elephants and long neck geese on planes, it is the cat that should be taking the later flight.Airlines have separated the allergic passenger and animal as far as possible within the cabin, limited the number of animals within the cabin, booked allergic passenger on later flights or arranged for the animal to go freight.

Can you believe that young woman (with the 2 small dogs)…."I feel bad for her if she has allergies, but it can't possible be that bad"!Reaction to animals in human cargo hold:
That’s a non-severe allergy? I wish more of my patients and been as tough as you!!! “I’ll be alright, give me a couple of hours, I’m sure I’ll regain my vision”.Searing headache, loss of breath, heart pounding, itchy skin.
Don't get me started on MIL, need a different thread (or DO we?). Ours lives in an attached granny flat on our property.My MIL thinks it's all in my mind and continues to destroy my dinner parties with perfume that smells like sweet fly spray. I have to take antihistamines and go outside until the worst of it subsides.
The Europeans have been managing to carry pets in the cabin for... well... ever. They don't seem to have problems, why do we?What kind of animal do you actually envisage carrying qs ?
Do you think the rspca would condone a pup in a bag under the seat for ?? hours
What if it throws up.. or goes to the toilet… or has a conniption like the bulldog ?
