  1. Very Good ATA500 Crate For Air Cargo Hold Except For... 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    This is a very large ATA500 Class kennel/crate, which is approved for airline transport for a large animal. I ordered the extra-cost metal hardware because the airlines demand metal instead of plastic assembly hardware. I used this crate for a German Sheppard, which technically did not meet all of the body clearance specifications for this size crate; the airline would have been within its rights to decline its passage because dog was a few inches larger than is recommended for this crate. Unfortunately, any crate larger than ATA500 will not fit on most domestic airline cargo hold equipment; the dog would have had to go air freight instead and that's a bigger hassle. The crate is very well built, especially with metal hardware to compliment it. I would have given it 5-stars except for it was a royal pain-in-the-neck to move it around the airport grounds (this ATA500 crate weighs 35-pounds without animal loaded). There are no hand grips or handles of any kind to carry or lift it. It was extraordinarily difficult to move crate, luggage, and dog from SUV rental lot, load onto bus-to-terminal ride, and finally to airline check-in counter; never mind moving and lifting with animal loaded by TSA personnel for inspection and loading and unloading from aircraft. Except for that great difficulty of transport, it is, otherwise, a very good value.
