    Air lines which will take animals usually keep them in a
    special cargo area. That area has uniform pressure which
    doesn't harm any animal including parrots of all kinds,
    small, medium and large. The only thing that the airline
    requires is a carrying case which meets the standards of the
    airline. That info can be gotten from the airline. They
    won't accept animals in any other type of carrying case---
