The lovers noted that it was cheaper than transporting them in the cargo hold.
The couple flew their two dogs to New York on a private jet because it turned out to be cheaper than carrying them in the cargo hold of a commercial plane.

Maddie Young, 31, and her husband, Stephen Whitworth, 32, had to travel to the Big Apple for work, but wanted to take their beloved pets with them.
So, they began looking for ways that their 12-year-old pug, Violet, and their one-year-old golden retriever, Oliver, could come with them to Brooklyn to start a new life.
However, they were immediately shocked by the cost of transporting two dogs across the Atlantic Ocean. You had to wait two years for a cruise ship, and flying in the cargo compartment was very expensive.
Young claims she was offered up to £12,000 ($14,800) per dog for the trip.
Then she came across a Facebook group promoting another method.
The company was willing to load the dogs on a private jet and fly them to New York for £4,000 ($4,900) less than what it was being offered.
The starting price was £10,000, but then £2,000 was returned because the plane was full and the passengers split the cost.
“It was full of people arranging the flights and sharing the costs. We paid £10,000 for us, including the seats. But it ended up being £8,000 because we got a refund for refueling the plane. It was the cheaper option. It was simple,” the woman shared.
So, they showed up half an hour before the flight, even before the four-legged ones were given name toys and a bag of dog biscuits.
Maddie added: “I was nervous. I’ve never flown private before. The experience was so great. There were eight dogs and 10 people. All the dogs were given personalized toys and a bag of dog biscuits which was quite sweet. All the dogs were very well behaved. They mostly slept , were freezing and gnawing at the bones.”
The plane stopped in Canada to refuel, allowing the dogs to relieve themselves while passengers did “whatever it took to calm them down” on board.
Now the whole family is in New York, settling into a new life.
We will remind you, the pilot “sucked” out of the plane window at an altitude of 5 km. They tried to hold him by the legs. The incident is one of the most shocking aviation stories.
