just goes to prove the value some place on money. If it was me I would have tied a rabbit to a piece of string and popped it out the window...

A freind of mine works with Gulf and if a member of the royal familly want something it happens, regardless. Afterall they own the airline. I guess the same goes with Emirates,it is also owned by the royal family. Wait 'till someone brings a camel onboard ;-)

I've heard of this on Gulf Air too...

At least it wasn't an emotional support miniature horse or a "service dog" crapping everywhere.

I just had to see what the fuss was about...

The Falcons sound like fun. I would rather share a plane with them than some of the alleged paying pax especially those that really should be loaded wth a Fork Lift truck.

The flyertalk babble was rather witless. Some horse and some dog crappi** in mid air. I would hazard a guess that this violates something or other. If pax have to wear seat belts then so should the bloody animals.

Not been to flyertalk before. After reading some of the thread I doubt I will bother.

Speedbird-Flyertalk is not all bad, some of the threads and postings, especially on worldwide airlines can be positive and useful.

However like TA and Thorntree you will always get the loons, and although some postings are pathetic some great humour (irony,no less - together with Monty Python) shines through.

Knew that-thought you would like the plug,and the "wink" loons comment.

Quite like raptors-watch the buzzards and kestrels in the air over over my garden - it would have been interesting to share First with a selection,all dozing with their hoods on.
