The United Arab Emirates is one of the regions where falconry is a popular sport, for which the birds are bred in high numbers there. Besides that fact, the royal family in Saudi Arabia are known for their insurmountable wealth and for their lavish expenses.
A Saudi prince has bought plane tickets for his 80 falcons to ensure their safe travel and the photo is going viral.
In the Middle East, falcons are the ultimate status symbol, and it’s become routine for some falcon owners to have their birds join them aboard flights, no matter if they’re traveling in first class or economy.
This week, videos and photos of a cabin full of the treasured birds went viral on social media.
