I have never flown with a rabbit so I can’t speak from experience. I have read in other threads that someone asked TSA if they could have the inspection done in a separate room. That way, if your rabbit were to get out of your arms, it would be in a small, contained space. I realize this is an additional step but it is worth protecting your bunny and helping with any concerns you may have. I would plan to go a little earlier than anticipated to account for their procedures.

I don’t know if the harness would be ideal if you don’t have a lot of time to practice with her. Most rabbits don’t take well to the feeling of one but if you were only using it to have better control when holding her with the leash around your wrist (and not using it on the ground where she could pull) it may be okay. Note, if the harness has any metal on it they may need to remove it anyways.

I also think it might be a good idea to line the cage with a towel (on top of whatever you would normally use). This way, if you can reach in from the top, you can wrap the towel around her sides and behind (like a swaddled baby) before taking her out to have better control.

I think they will be understanding considering it is not the usual type of animal going through security.
