The Vanity Fair editor used his miles to fly the long-haired pup from Louisiana to NYC, not on a private plane.

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter recently procured a long-haired dachshund puppy from a Louisiana breeder.

Of course, you don’t FedEx dachshunds.

Though the print edition of THR says Carter sent a private plane to transport the pup, that was not the case. THR, which inaccurately printed that Carter had purchased the dog in North Carolina, regrets the error.

Instead, the breeder brought the dog to NewYork on Jet Blue, using Carter’s personal miles.

“Believe me, no private jets around here,” Carter says. “Dog or no dog.”
