It’s not every day you see around a hundred falcons flying commercial. When we want to travel with pets, since they aren’t allowed on the plane, for obvious reasons, they need to be shipped in the plane’s belly. However, when you’re royalty, you have the financial means and status to fly your birds any way you see fit.
The Saudi Prince wanted to fly his falcons between the Arab Emirates, and he wanted them to get the royal treatment. As a prince, he could afford purchasing all the plane tickets just for his birds, who now know what flying feels like for humans.
