This has freaked us out!
An image is going viral on Reddit of a Saudi prince who brought 80 falcons on a plane.
80 MOTHERF***ING birds on a MOTHERF***ING PLANE.
The OP explained: “My captain friend sent me this photo, “Saudi prince bought ticket [sic] for his 80 hawks."
The rules are actually in place as they are a vulnerable species and to prevent trafficking. While it's not common to see 80 of the birds, one or two is quite normal.
“If you fly Etihad or Emirates or Qatar enough you will eventually see someone flying in first class with a falcon sitting next to them,” another Redditor explained.
