When it comes to saving the lives of animals, airlines and hotels have often made exceptions to strict policies during emergencies and natural disasters. This was an instance where American Airlines should have done the same.

I think the airlines should keep a few extra pet carriers for instances such as this.

Inexcusable and shameful behavior American Airlines.
In Life or Death Emergencies, all normal regulations
must be permitted. Therefore, it would be prudent
for Airlines to be equipped with spare animal carriers
just for such emergencies.
I have signed.
Thank you Melania

I understand what you're saying Freya, but these type of situations are emergencies/crisis. I mean, they should have policies for making exceptions or carriers for pets. I mean, these climatic emergencies will get more common with time, and all organizations/companies need to start including climate change events into account. That is my humble opinion :-)
