Hey guys,
I found a lot of help on this forum regarding pet travel, but now I am stuck at point where I can't seem to find an answer.*
Lufthansa unlike other airlines is very liberal about letting pet owners fly with their pooches even if they are classified as aggressive breed. Lufthansa does have a requirment for those breeds classified under the term "Aggressive".
I have a 2 years old rottweiler whom I need to take with me to the U.S., and I found Lufthansa to be the cheapest alternative, $420 straight. The found from an earlier post that carrying dogs in a giant crate 48"32"35" would be an ok with the airline, although it defies their crate size restrictions, which is relieving. They have asked me to get a IATA CR82 compliant crate for my rottweiler, which I cannot seem to find anywhere. People in my city- Ahmedabad suggests me that this requirment can be dodged since no-one at the airport- Mumbai would even be aware of it. I have called Lufthansa reservations to confirm about this but they ask me to call Lufthansa staff at mumbai airport and take their permission if taking my rottweiler in a regular IATA compliant crate is ok. I have tried calling them several time but with no response, I even took a trip to the airport to get hold of someone and ask them about it but security wouldn't call someone from Lufthansa. I even called Delhi airport where someone did receive my call to tell me its ok if I was departing from Delhi, but eventually asked me to get permission from Mumbai airport.
To the last resort I think this forum can be a legitimate place to get proper bankable information about this situation.
I would be grateful towards any help.

Thank you guys.

But the people at the transfer airport (Frankfurt or Munich) will most probably be aware of it.
