: Does anyone know of another airline besides Delta that will ship live snakes without being FAA approved?
Try NW Air Cargo. I shipped venomous with them not being a known shipper. Though, snakes can't go through their VIP service, so the destination must have a NW Cargo facility. Also, even though NW Company policy states they should not refuse venomous snakes(or any), some terminals may refuse to accept them. I had to switch airports because one wouldn't accept, even went so far as having their national office call the cargo facility and they got into a long discussion about it(while I was on hold--pretty amusing actually).
