Great tips!
Be sure to review your airline's guidelines for carriers and pet size. The airlines (at least the one I flew with) are VERY strict about the animal being able to stand up and turn around in the carrier. My dog is similarly sized (maybe even a bit smaller) than the one in the photos and could not fly in the cabin because like the dog in the photo he could not raise his head fully with the carrier zipped closed.
Also be aware that most airports require (and generally try to enforce) that animals other than service animals be IN the carrier while in the airport. Make sure your pet is used to being confined for a time period that allows for the flight time time in the airport.
Bring some clean up supplies (just in case). A pair of disposable rubber gloves, a packet of wet wipes, and a plastic bag can make a big difference!
