Decision Means No Major Commercial North American Airline Will Ship Monkeys to Their Deaths in Experiments
Chicago -- Following a vigorous yearlong PETA campaign that included public protests and

headquarters, and purchased stock in the company with the intention of
introducing a shareholder resolution later this year.
France, China Eastern Airlines, Philippine Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines are
the only remaining major airlines that transport primates destined for
