Q: Were there pets on the U.S. Airway plane that crashed?

I was just wondering if anyone knew? I would hate to think about someone's poor pet drowning. I can't imagine knowing my pet was in a cage in cargo when I was trying to get out. Sends shivers up my spine more than the cold water would.

The US Airways pets as cargo website says that "For the safety of your pet, US Airways does not accept any animals in its cargo compartments". But there are exceptions on nonstop flights in the BOS/DCA/LGA markets only. That is good news concerning this flight. Sure we would have heard by now if anyone had a pet in the cabin. John is right - Sully would have carried the animal out himself!!!

I don't recall hearing about animal on board. Animals are safest at home.

I saw a interview with one of the scuba divers, ( I think we are all waiting to hear ..) and the reporter asked him, if there were any pets. and he didn't really say yes or no, just said that in any rescue their priority would be to get to the pets as soon as they could after the people are safe.

I have not read any reports of pets. And if there was any pets, with this pilot, they probably got out anyway.

So far it was reported that all passengers lived and that there were no animals on board.
