Rocky was with me in cabin about 3 times. I had a soft pet carrier with me and it went really well. I was really lucky as I was always allowed to either have him in his carrier on my lap or on the seat next to me, so never had to put him under the seat. The flight was really short though (1.5 hours) and I have to say that he did seem nervous.

I would defo have your chi get used to the carrier beforehand. Its a big advance that Rocky loves his carrier, as he gets into it straigth away when I get it out of the closet.

I have to say though that a 14 hour flight does seem quite long and I can't imagine flying for that long with Rocky being stuck in a "small carrier". I would try to split up the flight into maybe 2 flights with a day break inbetween somewhere (not sure if that's even possible). Even for us 14 hours are long and borring, but for an animal it seems even worse.

I am not sure whether you can actually have them out of the carrier for most of the time. If the airplane is full or the steward/stewardess doesn't like it, your pets will have to stay in their carrier and under the seat for the entire flight. So I wouldn't rely on you being able to take them out. Also I am wondering how and where they are able to do their "business".
I personally wouldn't feel comfortable flying soo long with Rocky, but I guess when you are moving you won't have a different choice.

i've never flown with him internationally but i'm not sure if dogs are allowed in cabin for countries that have quarantine requirements.
I would defo check that out, as you for example can't even fly TO the UK with a dog in cabin due to the pet travel regulations (all dogs have to fly in Cargo).
