Is it possible for me to have two cats in a carrier when flying? Or do they need seperate carries?

My two girls and I are moving to Korea in a year, so I want to keep an eye out for a good deal on airline-approved carriers. Due to various factors, it's very likely my girls will end up in the cargo hold, and I just think it would be safer and more comfortable for them to let them share one large crate, as opposed to two small carriers. Of course, I'll call the airlines as the time approaches, but I'd thought I'd ask around first.

Does anyone have experience flying with multiple cats?

I know when I flew with my cat the airline had a rule that there could only be one animal carried on the plane per flight, so even if you wanted to bring both of them on board you might not be able to. I don't know about the two-in-one-carrier question for pets in the baggage area, I bet it varies according to which airline you're using (as does the pets-on-board rules). I think I flew United, but I'm not positive, and it was a few years ago so their rules may have changed since then anyway. The hardest part for me was getting through security (get cat out of cat carrier while he tries to stay in the carrier, put cat carrier through x-ray machine while holding cat who is trying to get down, walk through metal detector holding cat who is still trying to get down, put cat back in carrier while he tries not to go back in...) which obv. won't be a problem if they go in cargo. I would want to put mine together in one carrier, I think they would find it soothing to have each other - when I've driven with them in one big carrier they always huddle together.
