So do the Middle Eastern airlines I believe... I'd probably do it as they are well trained, you just need to be sensible and not stick your fingers in it's beak!

If they are hooded and tied securely to the pax who has a falconry glove on - by all means.

I would prefer a falcon over a special snowflake dog owner with fake "service dog" credentials.

Don't get me wrong, I like dogs but some of the "service dog" shenanigans is getting too much.

IIRC from previous discussion about falcons on middle eastern airlines, they are only allowed on flight to/from pakistan and the falcon has to have a business class seat.

The article doesn't say if food would be provided for their falcons. :mrgreen:

Emirates have a falcon policy, it is only for flights to/from Pakistan and economy class can have 1, first can have 2. I forget the allowance for business class.
