It’s a Bird. It’s a Plane. It’s PETA!

Published by PETA.

You might have noticed in your holiday travels that airlines have been cutting back on a lot in order to save money, which is bad news for people who depend on those dry-roasted peanuts and tiny packs of pretzels for mile-high sustenance. Some airlines, such as US Airways, are considering placing ads on their overhead bins to increase revenue. We think it’s a fantastic idea and certainly much better than charging for luggage!

PETA has stepped up to the plate to offer an ad to US Airways and get this new option rolling. Here’s a sneak peak at our new ad, featuring a cartoon by the wonderful Dan Piraro:

“Cages aren’t for the birds. Let them fly free.” Get it? Fly free? Airlines? Anyway, the cartoon may be funny, but the reality for caged birds is not.

We hope for the birds’ sake that US Airways will accept our ad offer—and maybe no passenger will have to go without peanuts.
