A Saudi royal booked 80 seats for each one of his 80 falcons aboard a Qatar Airways flight.
A Saudi prince reportedly booked enough seats on a Qatar Airway flight to transport his 80 falcons, with each occupying its own individual seat. The bizarre image was taken by the flight's pilot and shared on Reddit on Monday, Arabian Business reports.
The falcons aboard the flight were hooded and had their wings tied to keep them calm and controlled.
According to the Business Insider, the UAE issues passports for falcons which is only admissible in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Morocco, and Syria.
Due to the widespread of falconry in Gulf states, several gulf airlines allow their passengers to book seats for their falcons. Qatar Airways, for instance, usually allows up to 6 falcons per flight, according to the airline's website, Metro News reports. It is unclear how the prince managed to book airline tickets for all 80 of his falcons.
