hope the dog is fine with all the traveling in the cargo hold.
Dogs are put in the forward hold, lights are kept on and it's behind the avionics compartment so that areas stays warm.
Keep in mind too that it will take a while to get your dog out of the cargo area. Our dogs arrived at 10:30 pm, but it took until after 4 am to get the dogs out.
They were put in a holding area in the terminal. You dogs arrived at 10.30 pm and only got them at 4 am.
No aircraft stays for 5.30 hours on the ground at Lima. If the crew stayed so long there then they would be far out of hours and the airline will be grounded and loose it's AOC licence.
More than 1 hours turnaround time and it's not worth doing the flight. It will lose money.
Rules for handling animals by the airlines are very strict. Even stricter than for people.
