On a recent flight in the United Arab Emirates, a member of the Saudi Arabian royal family reportedly purchased individual seats for each of his 80 falcons, and a photo of the falcon-filled plane is taking off (pun intended) online

In case of a emergency, they are all a qualified pilot.

u/into_the_soil Jul 01 '22

I have really, really wanted to become a falconer for so long and never once really considered first rate falcon airfare.

u/wags83 Jul 01 '22

That should at least let them watch the in-flight entertainment. And, ya know, fly around the plane and maul each other...

u/Far-Worldliness-3769 Jul 01 '22
