British Airways welcomed a Pembroke Welsh Corgi in its new Club World Suite onboard a Boeing 787-10. “Service animals” are always welcome onboard business class on British Airways.
Corgi Flies On British Airways In Club World Suite On 787-10
Winston the Corgi is fun-loving, cute, and also a service dog when it suits him. A whole Instagram channel based around “Worldwide Winston” charts his luxury travels around the world.
Recently, Winston flew on British Airways from Miami to London in BA’s lovely new Club World Suite (I love this product on the 787 – it pushes business class on British Airways into top tier status).

Yes, Winston enjoyed the plush bedding of business class and cuddled with his human guardian, no doubt providing excellent service and support.
As if to rub it in, there’s a warning on his Instagram page:
Only Guide or Service Dogs are allowed inside the cabin. Service dogs are medical assistant dogs that are trained specifically for the medical needs of their handler. ESA dogs are not classified as service dogs.
My takeaway is that if you want to take your cute dog on a plane trip, you should begin the process of preparing paperwork to make the dog a certified service animal.
I won’t link to less savory parts of the internet, but a simple google search can find you a number of agencies willing to issue the paperwork you need. However, I do not recommend faking paperwork, especially vaccination details. Rather, I point this out to suggest how easy it is to fly with your dogs in business class even though pets are “not allowed” in the cabin.
Winston is cute. And what a lucky dog to be able to travel around the world in style. As for whether he is a service dog, I guess that…
Finally, I know another traveling Winston who is even cuter. 😉
