A Saudi prince has bought economy class airline seats for his 80 hawks, according to a photo posted on Reddit, reported The Korea Times.
Not surprisingly, the photo has gone viral.
The picture, posted by Reddit user "lensoo," was allegedly taken by the plane's pilot and sent to him.
"My captain friend sent me this photo," lensoo said in his post. "Saudi prince bought a ticket for his 80 hawks."
It is unclear which airline the hawks are on.
But it is not an unusual sight in the Middle East, where falconry is a prominent symbol of wealth.
Airlines such as Qatar, Etihad and Emirates allow falcons in their cabins to certain destinations.
What is even more amazing is that the falcons need a passport.
