Exalted status

In the nation’s animal world, falcons still enjoy exalted status. They are the only animals allowed uncaged in cabins on flights operated by Emirates Airline and Etihad Airways, the national carriers. They are issued their own passports, bearing their names and images. They travel, often uncaged, in their owners’ cars.
