Do you have any tips for traveling with your pet on an airplane?

I don't know what kind of animal you have, but make sure it meets travel standards. Some states and airlines have certain vaccine requirements and it may need a health certificate to travel. Barring that, check with your vet if you think you pet might get anxious during travel. There are medications that can help. And always make sure your pet is as safe and comfortable as possible. Safe travels.

Depending on the size of your pet, you may be allowed to take them out of their carrier on the plane. When I was bringing home my cat I had her out on my lap on the plane to keep her calm as she cried a lot in her carrier. However, many times it's required that your pet is a registered emotional support animal for this- it depends on the airline and how stringent the flight attendants are that day. As Dew mentioned, the most important part is finding a way to keep your pet safe, calm and comfortable!
