He is over the limit. You need to look at other airlines, or make other arrangements. Other frenchies don't make a whit of difference to your dog. The last thing you should do is to just show up for your flight without making proper arrangements.

You have good reason to be worried. They will almost certainly weigh your dog at check-in, like they do with luggage, and discover that she's too heavy. You might get lucky and get someone who'll let the extra pounds slip, but if your dog is cramped in her bag there's no way they'll let her on. And the bag/crate *must* be the correct dimensions.

The only suggestion I have is, if you decide to try it, make sure a friend or family member comes with you to the airport to take your dog if they refuse to let her on. Otherwise, your dog AND you will miss your flight.

I hope you get lucky, though!
