A Saudi Prince has reportedly bought a plane seat for every one of his 80 falcons. And apparently it’s a totally legitimate thing to do.
Thanks to the internet there is some great photos of what quite understandably has surprised passengers, staff and well, the world at large.
Although it’s a pretty odd sight, it’s not an uncommon thing to see falcons on planes in the United Arab Emirates. Etihad and Qatar actually have official falcon policies.
“We accept the carriage of falcons in the main aircraft cabin provided that all the necessary documents have been obtained. We also accept falcons as checked baggage,” Etihad says in its baggage policy.
