Short Cuts:First-Class for Fido

illustration Companion Air (, the brainchild of pet lovers Rick and Diana Roof, is a Boca Raton, Fla.-based charter carrier that will take pet travel to a new level. Bipeds will board with their furry friends, stow them in designated kennels and visit them during the flight. And there are privileges to be had for the well-behaved canine: a tour of the cabin and a reassuring visit with that significant other. All decisions for visitation rights will rest purely with the cabin attendant. Every pet, however, is treated to pre-ordered inflight crunchies. Flights are set to begin in May.
