Video Podcast: Virgin’s new pet project

written by Robyn Tongol | March 13, 2024

Pet-loving passengers rejoice – Virgin Australia is allowing literal ‘sky kittens’ on its planes, with small dogs and cats soon to be allowed in the cabin on select domestic flights.

Adam and Jake discuss whether this is a good idea – or whether the airline will soon be dogged by catastrophe.
