LUFTHANSA Airlines is offering pets and live animals the world's ultimate in luxury travel with a dedicated first-class animal lounge.
"Our animal lounge provides individual care, professional expertise and an environment designed to ensure ultimate comfort for the 14,000 household pets and 1500 horses and wild animals annually," Lufthansa general manager, Kai Peters, said.
All pets travelling in the passenger cabin are transferred to the animal lounge if a transfer or layover exceeds more than two to three hours.
"About thirty minutes before the plane landed, the dog started giving birth to several puppies," he said.
"A veterinarian from the animal lounge was called to the aircraft upon landing and the little puppies were safely delivered."
