Transporting pets on airplanes hasn’t been the most reasonable of airline fees. Next month, United Airlines is set to hike up the fees for traveling pets to as much as $3,900.

The new fees are of particular concern to U.S. military families living overseas with pets. Many travelers took to United’s Facebook page with comments on the fees.

Some comments expressed fears that military families would be unable to afford to take beloved pets home with them or that pets might be abandoned altogether.
