Default Saudi prince bought a seat for each of his 80 falcons on this plane!

Ok. Here's something you don't see very often, but maybe it's common over in the middle east? Guessing some of the passengers were fine with their fellow winged passengers in the cabin. I'm thinking these falcons are probably more well behaved than other annoying passengers. Cheers! T7

It begs one question, does he not have his own 7?7 or a family members he could have borrowed? Flying commercial is just so 'common" or perhaps my view is to 'hawkish'.

What a cheap Prince! You'd think First Class or maybe even window seats. Imagine the bird poop to clean after.

You are welcome. I thought the folks on the DAC had to see the photos to believe.

I hear ya. I'm thinking the older brother must have taken the B747 over to Europe for a few days of shopping.

Funny you should mention 'common'; Eldrick Tiger Woods had to fly commercial for the 1st time in over 10 years!

I'm guessing the Falcons must have let him down during their last matches. So he punished each of them by flying 'cattle' class in the middle rows! I read that the FA crew had put clothes under each of the birds to catch their poop.

I am sure that those seats were not "cheep"
