AMC has updated the in-cabin kennel sizes
New dimensions will increase height limitations from previous guidance and will allow for larger kennels/pets.
Only one in-cabin pet space per ticketed traveler can be booked, not to exceed two total pets per family. In-cabin pet space may be booked provided the passenger ensures the pet container does not exceed 18” L x 11” W x 10 ½” H, the container will fit under the seat, and all carrier pet limitations are met.
